Thanks M,
I have security enable,
; output security messages to the file named "Security"
security => security

I see the file created in /var/log/asterisk/security but is empty, and 
in /var/log/asterisk/messages I see the following:
[2015-12-03 06:52:32] NOTICE[19949] chan_sip.c: Failed to authenticate 
device 100<sip:100 at X.X.X.X>;tag=a121ab55

X.X.X.X is the IP of my Server, I don't know who is the attacker IP 
unless I monitor for the server using the following command:
tcpdump -lni eth0 -f "udp port 5060"

Please advise.
