RSA LIVE Content Q2'2016 Announcement

Blog Post created by Saket Bajoria Employee on Aug 10, 2016

The RSA Content team is pleased to announce the addition of the following new features along with new and updated content to the RSA Live Content Library. 


Live Content Search Tags

A new set of Advanced Security Operations Center (ASOC) tags have been introduced in Live to provide an easier way to search for relevant content. These tags are used to organize Live content and to deliver an accurate path to information security incident response. The tags are found in the Tags field in the Live Search Criteria view. The objective of a tag is to catalog existing content for deployment according to an incident response approach. RSA LINK.


Traffic Flow- Directionality

Decoders can now derive the directionality of traffic using the source and destination hosts referenced within a session. This information provides the context of whether a session was initiated from an internal host to an external host (outbound), from an external host to an internal host (inbound), or was between two internal hosts (lateral).

Enhanced Log Parsing functionality

An enhancement has been made to the transfer of logs from the Log Collector to the Log Decoder which can minimize the chances of incorrect parsing. As part of the Log Collector configuration of certain types of event sources, such as File or ODBC, the Administrator can now specify the event source type, such as Apache or Oracle. The Log Collector now passes this information to the Log Decoder so that the Log Decoder can directly use the specified parser. No configuration changes are necessary, but new Log Collector content will need to be applied from Live in order to benefit from this enhancement.


Enhanced Content Deprecation

All the content on Live has been reviewed to see if there is any that is outdated and can be discontinued. Individual services can be scanned for discontinued content.  The discontinued resources are displayed in red on the UI. Refer to the Live Services Management guide for more details.


Here is a list of all Discontinued Content on Live. RSA LINK.
