Logging custom events (ie 4662) to trigger alerts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can we customise the event forwarding to include additional triggers?

    IE if we were to use LAPS to manage password changes on local machines, we can trigger a 'sensitive attribute' event id that logs access to sensitive AD attributes? It would be useful to show this level of sensitive access in ATA (along with changes to sensitive groups)

    I appreciate this is straying away from DC traffic, but does loosely fall under threat analytics :D

  • Hi,

    the only supported event for forwarding is 4776. ATA automatically reads the events on the DC itself and others if you have a normal GW.

  • That is wrong, you need to set up event collection even with normal GW, as GW and LGW can only read forwarded events for the time being.

  • Going back to the original question,  can ATA provide any visibility into read activity against the ms-Mcs-AdmPwd attribute?   At least in our environment, access of more than one password attribute per hour(or even day) would be pretty unusual.

    It's my understanding that the ms-Mcs-AdmPwd attribute access isn't audited, so ATA's LDAP access would seem to give it a uniquely good vantage point.
