In a TE log you can find additional important information how a file was processed:
In the example above "trusted source" means that this file was bypassed by the global whitelist hence it was not emulated.
Different values explained:
|trusted source||file bypassed emulation due to Check Point maintained and automatically updated TE whitelist|
|emulator||file was locally emulated on a SandBlast Appliance|
|cloud emulation||file was sent to cloud emulation|
|remote emulation||file was sent to a remote SandBlast Appliance for emulation (this log is usually issued by a gateway connected to a SandBlast appliance)|
|static analysis||file was pre-filtered by static analysis and was not emulated|
|local cache||file´s SHA1 was already found in cache (# tecli cache dump all) and was not emulated; action is based on the cached verdict|
|archive||handled file was an archive|
In depth info of e.g. static analyis, cache handling etc can be found in the amazing ATRG: Threat Emulation SK:
With this knowledge you can easily query all files that e.g. were really sent to cloud for emulation:
With SmartLogs Timeline results you can even quickly check how file amount was handled over a certain timeframe.
This is also helpful for investigating performance/throuput issues.
