The Status of Event Auditing Standardization

David Corlette, Product Manager, NetIQ

The Open Group was one of the first groups to attempt to standardize event auditing on a cross-platform basis. Since the original XDAS release, other groups have taken up the torch, most notably the DMTF which published the Cloud Auditing Data Federation (CADF) standard this year. This session will cover the recent advances in event audit standardization and discuss opportunities to incorporate The Open Group use cases to create a version of XDAS v2 as a profile of CADF. This effort promises to provide a guidepost to help resolve the current mishmash of proprietary, non-standard logging and auditing protocols in use today.

Key takeaways:

- Status of key event audit standardization efforts

- Structure and practical usage of the new DMTF CADF standard

- Opportunities relating to XDAS v2 as a profile of CADF
