1 Monitoring Microsoft SQL Server Audit Logs with EventTracker The Importance of Consolidation, Correlation, and Detection Enterprise Security Series White Paper Publication Date: Feb 28, 2014 EventTracker 8815 Centre Park Drive Columbia MD

2 Abstract The purpose of this paper is to highlight the major advantages of employing EventTracker to consolidate and manage Microsoft SQL Server Enterprise Edition audit log data. The paper introduces at a high level the major design concepts that enable EventTracker to process, store and allow users to gain actionable intelligence from the millions of critical events generated by SQL Server. SQL Server event data contains a wealth of valuable information for both Database Administrators and for security controls and compliance. Monitoring and managing SQL Server audit logs manually is tedious, time consuming and for all practical purposes impossible for a large setup. This paper explains how to set up auditing so that EventTracker can effectively and efficiently perform these jobs. The steps mentioned here for setting up the SQL Server (Enterprise Edition only) audit trail are for the Windows Operating System. Scope The configurations detailed in this guide are consistent with EventTracker Enterprise version 7.X and later, Microsoft SQL Server 2008, 2012 and 2014 Enterprise Edition.

4 SQL Server Audit Setup Tracking and logging database activity is critical for overall Enterprise security and in addition provides data for many compliance requirements such as Sarbanes Oxley, SAS 70, etc. In SQL Server 2008, 2012 and 2014 Microsoft has introduced new auditing capability that is invaluable to the DBA tasked with producing detailed audits that track database usage. Through this new audit capability auditing can be implemented at the server and database levels, enabled on individual database objects and saved to different formats such as binary files or to the Windows Application or Security log. For EventTracker to collect, manage and monitor the SQL Server logs it is necessary to forward the SQL Server logs to either the Windows Application or Security logs. This White Paper describes the steps necessary to setup the auditing functions. Components of Auditing There are 4 components to the audit system: SQL Server Audit Server Level Audit Specification Database Level Audit Specification Target The SQL Server Audit object is the audit component that collects Server or Database level actions or group of actions. The Server Level Audit Specification object is the audit component that collects server level actions or group of actions. The Database Level Audit Specification object is the audit component that collects database level actions or group of actions. The Target component is the destination where the audit records are written. It could either be the Windows Application or Security log or a binary file. 3

5 Create Audit Records The following are the steps to set-up auditing: Create Audit (enable) and define target. As mentioned, for EventTracker it would either Windows Application or Security logs Create Server level audit Specification, Database level audit Specification or Audit level Specification that maps to the audit requirements defined. Enable the Audit Specification Enable the Audit EventTracker collects and reads the audit event records from the Windows Application or Security log. Audit Action Categories Audit can have the following categories of Actions: Server Level. Includes Server operations Database Level. Includes DDL and DML. Audit Level. Include the auditing process Microsoft SQL Server 2008, 2012 and 2014 has grouped actions for Server Level, Database Level and Audit Level actions that can be used when creating the Server Level or Database Level Audit Specification. The following are the Server Level Audit action groups that could be defined in the Audit Specification: SUCCESSFUL_LOGIN_GROUP LOGOUT_GROUP FAILED_LOGIN_GROUP LOGIN_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP 4

6 APPLICATION_ROLE_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP SERVER_ROLE_MEMBER_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_ROLE_MEMBER_CHANGE_GROUP BACKUP_RESTORE_GROUP DBCC_GROUP SERVER_OPERATION_GROUP DATABASE_OPERATION_GROUP AUDIT_ CHANGE_GROUP SERVER_STATE_CHANGE_GROUP SERVER_OBJECT_CHANGE_GROUP SERVER_PRINCIPAL_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_OBJECT_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_PRINCIPAL_CHANGE_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_CHANGE_GROUP SERVER_PRINCIPAL_IMPERSONATION_GROUP DATABASE_PRINCIPAL_IMPERSONATION_GROUP SERVER_PRINCIPAL_IMPERSONATION_GROUP DATABASE_PRINCIPAL_IMPERSONATION_GROUP SERVER_OBJECT_OWNERSHIP_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_OWNERSHIP_CHANGE_GROUP DATABASE_OBJECT_OWNERSHIP_CHANGE_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_OWNERSHIP_CHANGE_GROUP SERVER_PERMISSION_CHANGE_GROUP 5

8 DATABASE_OBJECT_ACCESS_GROUP SCHEMA_OBJECT_ACCESS_GROUP The following are the Audit Level Audit action groups that could be defined in the Audit Specification AUDIT_ CHANGE_GROUP The following are the Database Level Audit actions that could be defined in the Audit Specification SELECT UPDATE INSERT DELETE EXECUTE RECEIVE REFERENCES The target audit file consists of zero or more audit action items which are recorded. As mentioned previously, the target component is the destination where the audit records are written. It could be Windows Application or Security log or a file. The following are the elements in the records sent to the target. event_time sequence_no action_id succeeded permission_bitmask is_column_permission 7

9 session_id server_principal_id database_principal_id object_ id target_server_principal_id target_database_principal_id class_type session_server_principal_name server_principal_name server_principal_sid database_principal_name target_server_principal_name target_server_principal_sid target_database_principal_name server_instance_name database_name schema_name object_name TSQL statement additional_information 8

10 Below is an example of an Audit Event from SQL Server: Figure 1 This is the detailed description for the event above: Audit event: event_time: :28: sequence_number:1 action_id:dl succeeded:true permission_bitmask:16 is_column_permission:false session_id:54 9

For to add audit options for MyDB, expand MyDB. Right click on Database Audit Specifications and click on New Database Audit 11

13 Specifications Give the respective name for e.g. MYDB Audit Select MyAudit, created earlier Select respective audit action type, object Class, Object Schema, Object Name, Principle Name. More information on what each Audit Action mean can be found at following MSDN site After creation the Audit details for MyDB will appear: Figure 3 12

14 Monitoring, Alerting and Reporting with EventTracker Once MSSQL Server is configured to send audit logs to either the Windows Application log or Windows Security log, the EventTracker agent resident on the system will transmit these logs to the EventTracker Console where they will be processed and stored. EventTracker provides support for efficiently monitoring, alerting and reporting of MSSQL Server Audit Logs. Monitoring EventTracker monitors all events generated by SQL Server. A DBA can monitor specific groups of events like table deletion events, table modified events, table created events etc. Below is the sample screenshot of SQL Server Events Collected by EventTracker: Figure 4 13

15 Alerting EventTracker can alert DBA s on critical events such as table deletion events, table modified events, table created events. These alerts can be received via , pager, SNMP traps, and as RSS feeds. Reporting EventTracker provides an exclusive reporting tool to generate requirement specific reports. Manual logging makes it difficult to retrieve the list of table deletion events, table modified events, table created events. Below are sample reports created by EventTracker specific to SQL Server logs. Microsoft SQL Table Created Events Figure 5 14

17 The EventTracker Solution The EventTracker solution is a scalable, enterprise-class Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution for Windows systems, Syslog/Syslog NG (UNIX and many networking devices), SNMP V1/2, legacy systems, applications and databases. EventTracker enables defense in depth, where log data is automatically collected, correlated and analyzed from the perimeter security devices down to the applications and databases. To prevent security breaches, event log data becomes most useful when interpreted in near real time and in context. Context is vitally important because often the critical indications of impending problems and security violations can only be learned by watching patterns of events across multiple systems. Complex rules can be run on the event stream to detect signs of such a breach. EventTracker also provides real-time alerting capability in the form of an , page or SNMP message to proactively alert security personnel to an impending security breach. The original event log data is also securely stored in a highly compressed event repository for compliance purposes and later, forensic analysis. For compliance, EventTracker provides a powerful reporting interface, scheduled or on-demand report generation, automated compliance workflows that prove to auditors that reports are being reviewed and many other features. With pre-built auditor grade reports included for most of the compliance standards (FISMA, HIPAA, SOX, GLBA, and NISPOM); EventTracker represents a compliance solution that is second to none. EventTracker also provides advanced forensic capability where all the stored logs can be quickly searched through a powerful Google-like search interface to perform quick problem determination. EventTracker lets users completely meet the logging requirements specified in NIST SP Guide To Computer Security Log Management, and additionally provides Host Based Intrusion Detection, Change Monitoring and USB activity tracking on Windows systems, all in a turnkey, off the shelf, affordable, software solution. EventTracker provides the following benefits A highly scalable, component-based architecture that consolidates all Windows, SNMP V1/V2,legacy platforms, Syslog received from routers, switches, firewalls, critical UNIX servers (RedHat Linux, Solaris, AIX etc), Solaris BSM, workstations and various other SYSLOG generating devices. Automated archival mechanism that stores activities over an extended period to meet 16

18 auditing requirements. The complete log is stored in a highly compressed (>90%), secured archive that is limited only by the amount of disk storage. Real-time monitoring and parsing of all logs to analyze user activities such as logon failures and failed attempts to access restricted information. Full support for monitoring of virtualized enterprises. Alerting interface that generates custom alert actions via , pager, beep, console message, etc. Event correlation modules to constantly monitor for malicious hacking activity. In conjunction with alerts, this is used to inform network security officers and security administrators in real time. This helps minimize the impact of breaches. Various types of network activity reports, which can be scheduled or generated as required for any investigation or meeting audit compliances. Host-based Intrusion Detection (HIDS). Role-based, secure event and reporting console for data analysis. Change Monitoring on Windows machines USB Tracking, including restricted use, insert/removal recording, and a complete audit trail of all files copied to the removable device.
