Sophos moduleedit

This is a module for Sophos Products, currently it accepts logs in syslog format or from a file for the following devices:

  • xg fileset: supports Sophos XG SFOS logs.
  • utm fileset: supports Sophos UTM logs.

To configure a remote syslog destination, please reference the SophosXG/SFOS Documentation.

The syslog format choosen should be Default.

Read the quick start to learn how to configure and run modules.

Compatibilityedit

This module has been tested against SFOS version 17.5.x and 18.0.x. Versions above this are expected to work but have not been tested.

Configure the moduleedit

You can further refine the behavior of the sophos module by specifying variable settings in the modules.d/sophos.yml file, or overriding settings at the command line.

Variable settingsedit

Each fileset has separate variable settings for configuring the behavior of the module. If you don’t specify variable settings, the sophos module uses the defaults.

For advanced use cases, you can also override input settings. See Override input settings.

When you specify a setting at the command line, remember to prefix the setting with the module name, for example, sophos.xg.var.paths instead of xg.var.paths.

xg fileset settingsedit

The Sophos XG firewalls do not include hostname in either the syslog header or body, and the only unique identifier for each firewall is the related serial number.

Below you will see an example configuration file, that sets the default hostname (if no serial number is included in the config file), and example on how to map serial numbers to a hostname

- module: sophos
  xg:
    enabled: true
    var.input: udp
    var.syslog_host: 0.0.0.0
    var.syslog_port: 9005
    var.default_host_name: firewall.localgroup.local
    var.known_devices:
      - serial_number: "1234567890123457"
        hostname: "a.host.local"
      - serial_number: "1234234590678557"
        hostname: "b.host.local"
var.paths
An array of glob-based paths that specify where to look for the log files. All patterns supported by Go Glob are also supported here. For example, you can use wildcards to fetch all files from a predefined level of subdirectories: /path/to/log/*/*.log. This fetches all .log files from the subfolders of /path/to/log. It does not fetch log files from the /path/to/log folder itself. If this setting is left empty, Filebeat will choose log paths based on your operating system.
var.input
The input to use, can be either the value tcp, udp or file.
var.syslog_host
The interface to listen to all syslog traffic. Defaults to localhost. Set to 0.0.0.0 to bind to all available interfaces.
var.syslog_port
The port to listen for syslog traffic. Defaults to 9005.
var.host_name
Host name / Observer name, since SophosXG does not provide this in the syslog file. Default to firewall.localgroup.local

utm fileset settingsedit

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

This was converted from RSA NetWitness log parser XML "astarosg" device revision 123.

var.input
The input from which messages are read. One of file, tcp or udp.
var.syslog_host
The address to listen to UDP or TCP based syslog traffic. Defaults to localhost. Set to 0.0.0.0 to bind to all available interfaces.
var.syslog_port
The port to listen for syslog traffic. Defaults to 9533

Ports below 1024 require Filebeat to run as root.

var.tz_offset
By default, datetimes in the logs will be interpreted as relative to the timezone configured in the host where Filebeat is running. If ingesting logs from a host on a different timezone, use this field to set the timezone offset so that datetimes are correctly parsed. Valid values are in the form ±HH:mm, for example, -07:00 for UTC-7.
var.rsa_fields
Flag to control the addition of non-ECS fields to the event. Defaults to true, which causes both ECS and custom fields under rsa to be added.
var.keep_raw_fields
Flag to control the addition of the raw parser fields to the event. This fields will be found under rsa.raw. The default is false.
