Capture MAC address in QAUDJRN with QAUDLVL *NETSCK
The *NETSCK audit level already provide information about socket connections made to the IBM i server, which includes from-and-to-IP-addresses. However, it does not capture the MAC address from where the socket request comes from. The reason why this will add value, is that in an environment whereby everybody links to the server via DHCP, the IP address cannot be used as a means to track that a specific user profile logged in to an IBM i session, from a specific PC, since the IP might change again. Collecting the MAC address will provide visibility as to which PC/Laptop a specific user was logged onto. The idea behind this visibility is that, from an audit point of view, I would like to see if there was a connection from a specific computer, for a specific user profile. I can probably build an exit program that can collect that information, but an auditor might reject the evidence, if it was not collected by a system process.
