This topic describes the AWS (CloudTrail) event source configuration parameters.
To access the AWS Collection Configuration Parameters:
- In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration > Services
- In the Services grid, select a Log Collector service.
- Click under Actions and select View > Config.
- In the Log Collector Event Sources tab, select Plugins/Config from the drop-down menu.
The Plugins/Config view in the Event Sources tab has two panels: Event Categories and Sources.
Event Categories Panel
In the Event Categories panel, you can add or delete the appropriate event source types.
Available Event Sources Types Dialog
The Available Event Source Types dialog displays the list of supported event source types.
The AWS (CloudTrail) Sources panel displays a list of existing AWS (CloudTrail) firewall event sources. Use this section to add or delete event sources and associated communication parameters.
The following table provides descriptions of the toolbar options.
Add or Edit Source Dialog
The Add Source dialog and the Edit Source dialog contain the same information.
Validates the connection to Event Source Address.
|Name *||Name of the event source.|
|Enabled||Select the check box to enable the event source configuration to start collection. The check box is selected by default.|
|Account Id *||Account Identification code of the S3 Bucket|
|S3 Bucket Name *|| |
Name of the AWS (CloudTrail) S3 bucket.
Amazon S3 bucket names are globally unique, regardless of the AWS (CloudTrail) region in which you create the bucket. You specify the name at the time you create the bucket.
Bucket names should comply with DNS naming conventions. The rules for DNS-compliant bucket names are:
The following examples are valid bucket names:
The following examples are invalid bucket names:
|Access Key *||Key used to access the S3 bucket. Access Keys are used to make seure REST or Query protocol requests to any AWS service API. Please refer to Manage User Credentials on the Amazon Web Services support site for more information on Access Keys.|
|Secret Key *||Secret key used to access the S3 bucket.|
|Region *||Region of the S3 bucket. us-east-1 is the default value.|
|Region Endpoint||Specifies the AWS cloudtrail hostname. For example, for an AWS public cloud for us-east region, the Region Endpoint would be s3.amazonaws.com. More information can be found at http://docs.aws.amazon.com/general/latest/gr/rande.html#s3_region. This parameter is necessary to collect CloudTrail logs from AWS Government or Private clouds.|
|Start Date *||Starts AWS (CloudTrail) collection from the specified number of days in the past, measured from the current timestamp. The default value is 0, which starts from today. The range is 0–89 days.|
|Log File Prefix|| |
Prefix of the files to be processed.
Note: If you set a prefix when you set up your CloudTrail service, make sure to enter the same prefix in this parameter.
Caution: Only enable debugging (set this parameter to On or Verbose) if you have a problem with an event source and you need to investigate this problem. Enabling debugging will adversely affect the performance of the Log Collector.
Enables/disables debug logging for the event source.
Valid values are:
This parameter is designed to debug and monitor isolated event source collection issues. The debug logging is verbose, so limit the number of event sources to minimize performance impact.
If you change this value, the change takes effect immediately (no restart required).
|Command Args||Arguments added to the script.|
|Polling Interval||Interval (amount of time in seconds) between each poll. The default value is 60.|
For example, if you specify 60, the collector schedules a polling of the event source every 60 seconds. If the previous polling cycle is still underway, it will wait for it to finish that cycle. If you have a large number of event sources that you are polling, it may take longer than 60 seconds for the polling to start because the threads are busy.
|SSL Enabled|| |
Select the check box to communicate using SSL. The security of data transmission is managed by encrypting information and providing authentication with SSL certificates.
The check box is selected by default.
|Test Connection||Validates the configuration parameters specified in this dialog are correct. For example, this test validates that: |
|Cancel||Closes the dialog without adding the AWS (CloudTrail).|
|OK||Adds the current parameter values as a new AWS (CloudTrail).|
