Audit logging of encryption events

Encryption License Key User Guide

Part Number

The Audit Log feature provides logging of events that occur in the storage system, including events related to encryption and data encryption keys. When the KMIP key manager is configured, the interactions between the storage system and the KMIP key manager are also recorded in the audit log. You can use the audit log to check and troubleshoot key generation and backup.

If you enable and schedule regular encryption key backups, the regular backup tasks are recorded in the audit log with the regular backup user name, even if the regular backup user was not logged in when the backup was performed.

For details about audit logging and audit log events, see the Hitachi Audit Log User Guide.
