Dear Valued RSA Customer,


RSA, a Dell Technologies business, is pleased to announce the general availability of RSA NetWitness® Log Parser Tool v1.1. The RSA NetWitness Log Parser Tool provides an easy and convenient way to create, edit and deploy custom Log Parsers on the RSA NetWitness Log Decoder.


RSA NetWitness Log Parser Tool (NWLPT):

The RSA NetWitness Log Parser Tool (NWLPT) is a standalone graphical tool that enables users to create and/or modify event source parser definitions that can facilitate RSA NetWitness Log Decoder to parse out log events into normalized meta keys. Here are some of the scenarios where this tool can be helpful:



  • To easily create a parser for custom applications or niche event sources
  • To improve or modify existing parsers for a particular environment or specific use-cases
  • To validate Logs against specific parsers without connecting with the RSA NetWitness platform
  • To deploy custom parsers across an RSA NetWitness environment
