IDS / Forensics Windows Event IDs.

Good Afternoon Dear EE.

Due to change in security policy, we implemented centralized log collector using Windows Server Log Subscriptions.

Can anyone point to good source of IDS / Forensics Event IDs to monitor?

We want to track what is important in Windows 2008 Domain, involving users, groups, directory services, GPOs, DNS, DHCP anything involving servers and workstations.
Also any recommendation how anyone else is monitoring it.

All feedback is greatly appreciated.

I like to suggest baseline aligning to the below - see section 4 for assurance and timely incident trigger cum response upon detection. Specifically the values is also as per MS best practices for
Securing AD focusing on several topics from defending against different attacks on AD installations to recommending an holistic list of events to monitor within a targeted domain.

Of course ideally we wanted all security event id but it is just going to be overwhelming and most probably backfired. The above is subset of the whole security listing - below is just an example (for sharing) list for all security events in Windows 7 and in Windows Server 2008 R2. There will definitely be more for Win8 and server 2012
