Cisco ASA Audit Event: 113006

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.

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-6-113006: User user locked out on exceeding number successive failed authentication attempts.

Event 113006 is generated when a user is locked out because the configured number of consecutive failed authentication attempts is exceeded. The user and the configured number of maximum failed authentication attempts are specified in the message.

How could you resolve this situation?

An administrator would have to unlock the account using 'clear AAA local user lockout' command or the number of maximum failed authentication attempts should be increased.
