RSA customers who are using RSA NetWitness Endpoint 4.3.0.4, 4.3.0.5, 4.4, 4.4.0.2, or later can integrate into NetWitness Suite in several different ways.

Integration Options

NetWitness Endpoint Integration with NetWitness Suite

Integration Methods

The following are the RSA NetWitness Endpoint integration methods:

  • Configure Endpoint Alerts through Respond
  • Configure Contextual Data from Endpoint through Recurring Feed
  • Configure Endpoint Alerts through Syslog into a Log Decoder
  • Configuring NetWitness Endpoint 4.4.0.2 Console Server to an Endpoint Hybrid or Endpoint Log Hybrid
  • Configuring Meta Integrator service in the NetWitness Endpoint 4.4.0.2 directly to a Log Decoder

Endpoint alerts into NetWitness Respond. This integration provides the capability for forwarding Endpoint alerts to Respond.

Contextual data from Endpoint through a NetWitness Suite Live recurring feed. This integration can enrich the session displayed in NetWitness Suite Investigation with contextual information; some examples include the host operating system, MAC address, IIOC score, and other data that may not be present in the log or packet data.

NetWitness Endpoint alerts through Syslog (CEF)into NetWitness Suite Log Decoders. This integration provides the capability to forward Endpoint events through Syslog and to correlate the events with other log or packet metadata in the NetWitness Suite ecosystem.

(For Version 11.1) NetWitness Endpoint to an Endpoint Hybrid or Endpoint Log Hybrid. This integration lets you can view the Endpoint metadata in the Investigate > Navigate and Event Analysis view similar to Logs and Packets. The NetWitness Endpoint 4.4.0.2 or later agents data is available in the Investigate > Hosts and Files view.

(For Version 11.1) NetWitness Endpoint directly to a Log Decoder. This integration lets you view the Endpoint metadata in the Investigate > Navigate and Event Analysis view similar to Logs and Packets. The NetWitness Endpoint 4.4 agents data will not be available in the Investigate > Hosts and Files view.

NetWitness Endpoint Meta Integration

The NetWitness Suite provides seamless integration allowing Endpoint metadata to be included into the NetWitness work flow. This lets analyst to investigate an incident and respond to it using packet, log, and endpoint metadata. The endpoint metadata provides further indicators and context related to a host, user, process, or file. It also provides tracking data that provide data of what has transpired with a host, user, process, or file.

NetWitness Endpoint Meta Integration

Built-in NetWitness Endpoint Lookup

With the RSA NetWitness Endpoint user interface (UI) installed on the same machine where the analyst is using a browser to access NetWitness Suite, the built-in NetWitness Endpoint Lookup from NetWitness Suite Investigation and NetWitness Suite Respond provides right-click access to the NetWitness Endpoint console server for the following meta keys: IP address (ip-src, ip-dst, ipv6-src, ipv6-dst, orig_ip), host (alias-host, domain.dst), client, and file-hash. These are described in the "Launch an External Lookup of a Meta Key" topic in Investigation and Malware Analysis User Guide and the "View Alerts" topic in NetWitness Respond User Guide.

NetWitness Suite configuration is not required for endpoint lookup when you are using one of the built-in parsers, NetWitness Endpoint or CEF, and you have not customized the default meta keys used when loading metadata in Investigation. For more information, see "Manage and Apply Default Meta Keys in an Investigation" topic in the Investigation and Malware Analysis User Guide.

Note: The exception occurs if you customize NetWitness Suite by editing the display setting for the default meta keys in Investigation, add meta keys to the table-map-custom.xml file, or customize NetWitness Endpoint feeds. Some configuration is required to add the custom meta keys to the context menu NetWitness Endpoint Lookup in the ADMIN > System view as described in the "Add Custom Context Menu Actions" topic in the System Configuration Guide.

NetWitness Endpoint Alerts and Indicators of Compromise

NetWitness Endpoint IIOC (Instant Indicator of Compromise) is a database query that NetWitness Endpoint runs on collected NetWitness Endpoint scan data to determine the presence of potential malware on scanned hosts. RSA NetWitness Endpoint 4.1.2 or later ships with IOCs that users can enable and mark as alertable. RSA NetWitness Endpoint runs IOC queries regularly on new scan data, which is collected and stored in the database. If the IOC query is satisfied, this indicates a potential indicator of compromise, and the event can be reported to a user or sent to an external system as an alert.

Possible types of alerts are:

  • Machine alert: This alert indicates that the machine in question is suspicious.
  • Module alert: This alert indicates that a module, such as a file, a DLL, or an executable, is suspicious. It contains details about the module in question.
  • Event alert: This alert represents any other suspicious activity detected by NetWitness Endpoint that does not fall into the above categories.

Each of these alert types can be sent to NetWitness Suite.
