Retention of NAT translations and Connections
Message from firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been reviewing our current process for logging Internet use of students/faculty/staff. One aspect we’ve been debating is how long to store the firewall logs for Internet use of our users. This includes building and teardown of connections, as well as NAT translation records. Our perimeter firewall generates a copious amount of logs per day and we are trying to determine how long “long enough” is.
Would anyone be willing to share their input as to how long they store this type of information. Any and all input is greatly appreciated.
