1.7  Auditing

Auditing, the last item in the AAA of security, is the process of monitoring a system or network, looking for potential security exposures or incidents, and verifying proper operation and configuration. The “system” that you are auditing may be a network, a computer, or your computing environment as a whole (including disaster recovery, physical security, processes, etc.).

The two most common approaches to system and network auditing today include configuration analysis/log analysis and vulnerability scanning.

Monitoring

Auditing involves monitoring a system or network, looking for potential security exposures or incidents, and verifying proper operation and configuration. Auditing can be performed in many ways, such as analyzing logs (which provides information about past events on the network/system) and system/network scanning (which provides information about the current state of the system/network.)
