The Cisco ISE must configure a remote syslog where audit records are stored on a centralized logging target that is different from the system being audited.
Information stored in one location is vulnerable to accidental or incidental deletion or alteration.
Storing audit logs to a different system than that being audited is a common process in information systems with limited audit storage capacity.
To view remote logging targets, complete the following steps:
1. From the ISE Administration Interface, choose Administration >> System >> Logging >> Remote Logging Targets. 2. The Remote Logging Targets page appears with a list of existing logging targets.
If a remote logging target is not configured, this is a finding.
