Audit Compliance - Firewall Questions

Hi All,

We are currently going through a PCI DSS Audit at the moment and the PCI Auditor has requested some additional information regarding logging, on our firewalls.

There are two requirements which we are still struggling to provide evidence for, these are:

PCI DSS Compliance V3

10.2.3 Verify access to all audit trails is logged.

Describe how configuration settings were observed to verify access to all audit trails is logged.

10.2.6 Verify the following are logged: Initialization of audit logs and Stopping or pausing of audit logs.

Describe how configuration settings were observed to verify initialization of audit logs is logged.

1) Is there a setting on the firewall, which would log a firewall event if the audit logs have been viewed by an administrator, via the admin console or on the local terminal?

2) Are any alerts generate if the firewall administrator stops or pauses the auditing on the firewall?

Any help on these would be greatly appreciated
