Cisco ASA Audit Event: 324301

Cisco ASA Events

The logs of network perimeter devices such as firewalls, antivirus applications and intrusion prevention systems contain crucial information that helps to pre-emptively block security attacks and breaches. Hence, it's mandatory for you to monitor and audit these logs. Because Cisco ASA provides the combined functionality of all the three, it becomes all the more important to monitor its logs. 

ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive log management solution, collects and analyzes the log data from Cisco ASA devices, triggers alerts and generate reports on detected security incidents thus helping you to take suitable measures against security threats, if any.

324301: Radius accounting request has bad header

Cisco ASA is a security device that provides the combined capabilities of a firewall, an antivirus, and an intrusion prevention system. It also facilitates virtual private network (VPN) connections. It helps to detect threats and stop attacks before they spread through the network.

Message: %ASA-3-324301: Radius Accounting Request has a bad header lengthhdr_len , packet length pkt_len.

Event 324301 is generated when the accounting request message has a header length that is not the same as the actual packet length. This would cause the packet processing to stop. The length indicated in the request header and the actual packet length are specified in the message.

How could you resolve this situation?

Make sure the packet was not spoofed. If the packet is legitimate, then capture the packet and make sure the header length is incorrect, as indicated in the message. If the header length is correct, and if this event keeps recurring, contact Cisco TAC.
