I've been asked to configure HIPS to monitor tasks/events on a local machine. This request comes of a possible security violation and we want to monitor everything this user is doing for a while..  I've set HIPS to Log All but it's only giving me info that woulb be considered an intrusion.. I've even set Application Blocking to Learn mode, in hope it would log more..  I need to capture everything this user is doing.. Basically I need HIPS to log the Task manager..  Is there a way to get HIPS or any module in HBSS to log all event/Tasks that are bing executed?

I personally think HBSS may not be the tool they need in accomplishing this issue but I needed to ask around before makeing the argument..

Hiya,
HIPS won't do it as it's designed to block intrusions, not monitor the user.
Basically what you are doing is trying to spy on the user.Have you connected the machines event viewer remotely ?
Thanks

Yeah I agree, I had to make sure I wasn't missing something..  I have to ask when you say connecting to the machines "Event Viewer Remotely", in what context were you speaking of?  I'm not sure of a way to conect to it remptly with out and RDP session or somthing similar that would alert the user of the monitoring..

Hiya
If you open Event Viewer and choose Action, Connect to another computer, you can then download the event logs
