Monitoring Splunk

Audit log access and initialization for PCI DSS

New Member


Does splunk log all audit information relating to requirement 10.2 in PCI DSS (Successful and Failed access to splunk, initialization of logs etc.. )

Our auditor wants to see all this and I'm sure splunk does monitor this but cant find it.

index=_audit will give you most of the information and here 2 examples:

splunk failed access:

index=_audit "action=login attempt" NOT "action=search" "info=failed"

splunk successful access:

index=_audit "action=login attempt" NOT "action=search" "info=succeeded"
