You'll redirect the logs of the Checkpoint product to the Logsign USO Platform product via the SSH connection over the CLI (Command Line). First, open the application for SSH connection and start the connection by typing the IP address of your Checkpoint product. After entering user information, enter the following commands respectively:
Note That: "logsignip" being the IP address of the remote Logsign system.
2. # service syslog restart
3. # cpstop
4. # cpstart
5. # fw log -ftnl | logger -p local0.info -t Firewall &
6. # echo "fw log -ftnl | logger -p local0.info -t Firewall &" >> /etc/init.d/cpboot
Host: IP address information of the Checkpoint product that you want to retrieve the logs.
Encoding: utf_8, which is accepted as the general standard in Information Technologies, is set as default. Agree in the same way.
Offset: To explain it in terms of definition, let's say "time difference." If the "system" time you want to log in is forward or backward from the real-time difference, you can edit it accordingly. The symbol "+" moves forward, and "-" moves backward. Time information is specified in minutes.
Data Policy: As a definition, you can filter in or out of incoming data. In the Data Policy section, you can specify the kind of logs (word, event movement type, etc.) that you want to receive or not from the source. The default setting here is the Default Policy, which has the default rule is "collect all logs."
Max Line Length to Process: Each log is generated as a single line. So, the Logsign USO Platform product takes these logs and analyzes them. In some cases, the number of characters in a single line of a single log file can be more significant than two thousand forty-eight (2048). In such cases, you can change this part.
Check Health: If you tick the box, that will inform you about the service and operability of the Logsign USO Platform product. The Health Check Period tab will come up when you tick the box. This part is the time interval information to be checked.
Device Name: You must enter a descriptive name according to the configuration that you are making (For ex., CheckpointFW). It can provide convenience for people who analyze logs. You can think of the Description field as a resource-specific area.
Tag: Slightly different from the Description section, it can be used for a broader purpose. For example, you can query by tag; and make tag-based definitions while creating a report if you use multiple FWs and define each tag as cp1 or cp2. If you want to query about an event, you will get a shorter result when searching according to the cp1 name.
Once configured your Checkpoint product, click the Save button to save your configuration and add the source.
