Control: 1.1.5 Ensure auditing is configured for Docker files and directories - /var/lib/docker
/var/lib/docker. As well as auditing the normal Linux file system and system calls, you should also audit all Docker related files and directories. The Docker daemon runs with root privileges
and its behaviour depends on some key files and directories.
/var/lib/docker is one
such directory. As it holds all the information about containers it should be audited.
You should add a rule for the
/var/lib/docker directory. For example,
Add the line as below to the
-a exit,always -F path=/var/lib/docker -F perm=war -k docker
Then, restart the audit daemon using the following command
systemctl restart auditd
By default, Docker related files and directories are not audited.
Run the control in your terminal:
steampipe check docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_1_1_5
Snapshot and share results via Steampipe Cloud:
steampipe loginsteampipe check --share docker_compliance.control.cis_v160_1_1_5
This control uses a named query:exec_auditing_configured_var_lib_docker
