MS ISA Reporting to MARS

The real question here is that since ISA doesn't use Syslog or SNMP as its standard communications protocol (it uses RPC), how will these devices integrate with MARS? Is a custom parser of any use here?

If there is a solution, are there any caveats/limitations?

Re: MS ISA Reporting to MARS

I'm not sure what you mean with respect to RPC. I think ISA can log to local files, and the process that sends data to MARS is generally something that does a "tail" of the log file.

Isn't ISA mostly a firewall and HTTP proxy and socks proxy? The HTTP proxy stuff should be straight forward. My understanding is that ISA uses the W3C logging format by default. see the user guide on configuring web server devices:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/security_management/cs-mars/5.3/user/guide/local_controller/cfgwebsv.html

The firewall and socks logs I'm not sure about, but expect they are logged locally in ascii text as well. This means that worse case, you can use Snare for ISA and a custom parser.
