The CyberArk Privileged Access Security integration collects audit logs from CyberArk's Vault server.

Audit

The audit dataset receives Vault Audit logs for User and Safe activities over the syslog protocol.

Vault Configuration

Follow the steps under Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Applications documentation to setup the integration:

  • Copy the elastic-json-v1.0.xsl XSL Translator file to the Server\Syslog folder.

  • Sample syslog configuration for DBPARM.ini:

[SYSLOG]
UseLegacySyslogFormat=No
SyslogTranslatorFile=Syslog\elastic-json-v1.0.xsl
SyslogServerIP=<INSERT FILEBEAT IP HERE>
SyslogServerPort=<INSERT FILEBEAT PORT HERE>
SyslogServerProtocol=TCP

For proper timestamping of events, it's recommended to use the newer RFC5424 Syslog format (UseLegacySyslogFormat=No). To avoid event loss, use TCP or TLS protocols instead of UDP.

Example event

An example event for audit looks as following:
