Event retrieval


i am running a network having 30 IPS (which indcludes SSM20s, IDSMs and IPS 44XX).

i dont have mars device. Is there any way to retrieve events from all the IPS to one central location using csmanager ??

or is there any freeware that can do the job.

Thanks in advance


Re: Event retrieval

CSM doesn't collect events, it can only be used to manage the signatures and configurations on your sensors. To collect events you'll need a SIM like MARS, NetForenisics, Intelitactics that has an SDEE (version 7.x has a newer protocol that is backards compatible with SDEE, I forget it's name) listener.

There were some open source pieces you could try to put together yourself, but nothing I know of that is preassembled.

Alternately, you could option all your enabled signatures to fire off an SNMP trap and collect those with a free SNMP receiver.

Re: Event retrieval

You may use OpenNMS as free traps receiver.
