This quick start guide will help Symantec™ Managed Security Services (MSS) customers configure Digital Guardian to send logs to the Log collection Platform (LCP).
The document includes the following topics:
A list of supported versions is available in the MSS Supported Products List document (Symantec_MSS_Supported_Products_List_CUSTOMER.xlsx) which can be found at: https://mss.symantec.com/PortalNextGen/Reports/Documents.
You have to configure "Data Export" on the Digital Guardian Management console to push Syslog to the LCP.
To create the Data Export source
Start the Data Export Wizard from the Data Export page
Hover your cursor over Workspace in the Digital Guardian Management Console and select Data Export from the list. The Data Export page opens.
Import the pre-defined "Data Export" xml file provided by Symantec MSS engineer.
Set Up Data Export Details
Select the type of data to export and the type of export to use.
Select Alerts from the Data source drop-down list.
Choose Syslog from the Export type drop-down list.
Choose the desired Type of protocol from the drop-down list, to forward the logs to the LCP.
Enter the IP address of the LCP
Enter the port number and select the level as Alerts
Enable the Is Active check box
The following fields are selected by the pre-defined XML file.
Review the data source selections and then test the search query before the data source is saved.
Note: This step is required. The data export cannot be saved if the query fails.
Save Your Data Export Configuration
Once the Data Export configuration is saved, your data export source becomes available. It becomes visible on the Data Exports page, and the exported data becomes available to your third party application or on the destination server.
Modify the name for the data export in Name text box.
Enter a description for the data export in Description text box (optional)
Table 1-2: Digital Guardian event collector sensor properties to be configured by MSS are shown in the table.
The default protocol for syslog. The collector can also accept logs in TCP.
Note: While TCP offers guaranteed delivery of log packets, it places a larger overhead on the LCP.
To balance TCP for reliability over UDP for speed/simplicity, contact the Symantec MSS onboarding team.
Digital Guardian interface IP address
Logging device IP address mentioned in the Pre-Installation Questionnaire (PIQ).
Note: If the device sends logs using multiple interfaces, contact the Symantec MSS onboarding team.
MSS recommended signatures processed by the Digital Guardian event collector.
The default port number for syslog. For TCP, the default port is 601.
Note: The LCP can be configured to listen on a non-standard port, please advise the Symantec MSS onboarding team if this is a requirement.
