Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Overview

Check Point ShowPolicyPackage tool visualizes the contents of a R80 security policy package (layers, rulebases, objects) over HTML pages.

Description

The tool allows the security policy as well as objects in the R80 objects database to be exported into a readable format. This exported information represents a snapshot of the database.

The tool generates a compressed file (.tar.gz) containing the following files:

• HTML files - The objects and rules presented as html files. The "index.html" acts as a starting point and
lists all the available items to display.

• JSON files - The objects and rules exported as multiple JSON files.

• Log file (e.g. show_package-yyyy-mm-dd_HH-MM-ss.elg) - A log file containing debug information.

Instructions

 This tool is hosted on GitHub repository for public use, containing a stand-alone executable Java JAR file (plug & play) and accompanied source code:

https://github.com/CheckPointSW/ShowPolicyPackage

Please follow the usage instructions and examples on this site. It contains valuable information.

Any questions, clarifications, improvements and feedback is welcome.

P.S. This tool is also delivered along with R80 management server releases. But the GitHub repository is the most updated and maintained source!

Tested on version

R80.10, API version 1.1

Source Code Availability

The source code is now public on GitHub repository as mentioned above.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Thanks Inbar,

Great workaround for the lack of R80 support for the previous Web Visualization Tools.

I would only suggest to clean-up the objects properties... seems to me that some information, such as uid, meta-info, is useless.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Several notes (tested on R80.10 OS build 24, FW build 27):

1. Default package that comes with the OS installation generates java errors, need to copy over the attached one. It looks like the proper one is NOT included, as said below.

2. Need an option for automatic fingerprint accept, otherwise requires human CLI interaction

3. Links in index.html file are not working, can jump to neither NAT nore security policy files from the index.

4. Threat Prevention and Installed On files are not present at all

5. If ran without any flag, the tool dumps only one of multiple policy packages

6. Sub-rules are not shown at all

Summary: needs some work...

Hi Tomas,

Thank you for your comment!

We are aware of this bug, it is fixed in the next version of the Management Server.

The cause of the bug is that your Access/Nat policies contain a SMB (Slim) GW, which unfortunately is not handled properly by the Web API server of R-80 management.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

When running web_api_show_package.sh the -b argument needs to be included to avoid the fingerprint error on R80.

Also as noted earlier the version of this script included in R80 Take 76 blows up with a "Failed to run show-nat-rulebase command/Unexpected character" error, the files attached to this posting must be installed on the R80 SMS for it to work.

Incidentally, the version of this script that shipped with the latest R80.10 EA seems to work just fine with no updates, and the -b argument is not necessary for it to run successfully.

Probably not with this script as the HTTPS Inspection rules aren't available through the R80 API yet.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

What about IPS Exceptions?  Seems the script has a problem pulling the IPS policies.

We get this error:

[Wed Jun 21 21:20:21 BRT 2017 com.checkpoint.mgmt_api.examples.MyLogger.warning()WARNING]: Failed to run show-threat-rulebase command ('IPS'): Message: 'Requested object [e84e4261-60e6-fb4e-85a9-57d32d2a7d4e] not found'. Status Code: '404'. probably IPS does not exist - continue

This IPS policy is there and we see later in the logs that it tries to pull the Exceptions:

[Wed Jun 21 21:20:22 BRT 2017 com.checkpoint.mgmt_api.examples.MyLogger.debug()DEBUG]: Run command: 'show-threat-rule-exception-rulebase' for threat layer: 'Border_Policy Threat Prevention' ('d1293b76-36c3-bb44-b02f-6fae624c96a0') with details level 'full'

However, it's not pulling anything.  The IPS html page gives you this:

IPS

Domain: XXXXXXXXXX
Package: Shared across all policy packages
Layer: IPS (threat-prevention layer)
Failed to create layer. For more information, please refer to the log file in the output tar file.
Is this a known bug with the API or script? 
Thanks.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

I have a MDM server in the test environment and imported the configuration from the production environment. When I run the show package tool I will get the error that the packages found were not installed on a gateway.

I run it on a CMA (trusted) but get more or less the same error when I run it on the MDM itself.

[Expert@MDM01:0]# ./web_api_show_package.sh -d Trusted
More than one package exists but neither one of them is installed on a gateway.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Hi Mark,

In a default case only packages that there policy is installed on gateway will be shown.

In order to see policy that is not installed on gateway use -k flag.

Inbar Moskovich.

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Hi Inbar,

I have made an export from our production environment (where all the policy’s are installed on the different gateways) and imported this configuration into our test MDM environment. When I run the show_package script there I get the result as described. I would expect that it should recognize that the policy’s are installed because that’s the case in the production environment. How does the script test if the policy is installed ?

Does it really connect to the different gateways (I can hardly believe that) or does the script just look for a compiled policy ?

Is the way I use the script a supported way, or are you just able to run it in the environment where the actual gateways are in ?

Regards,

Mark

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

I found the problem. There were no compiled policy files after the export/import from R77.20 to R80.10. After I pushed some policy's in our testenvironment the script works fine.

Where can you get the 1.1.4 version of the code?  The link above seems to provide the 1.1.3 version still (or the code didn't increment the version number.).

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Hi,

On gaia 77.30, We used to cpdb2web to export our policy to xml and then we execute a tool to list and test firewall rules. (https://sourcesup.renater.fr/projects/jtacl/)

What is the best way to reproduce this with show_package script ?

It doesn't look like to be xml compatible.
Extraction duration of the the policy is about 10 times long than with precedent tool.

Any tips would be apreciate as we can't use our analysis tool from a month now ;(

Hi Fabrice,

Currently the supported formats are html, json and csv:

The show package tool exports the data in html and json formats.

The ExportImportPolicyPackage exports the data in csv format.

Is this a known limitation?

Re: Show Package - Tool to visualize a R80 policy package over HTML pages

Hi Nader,

The display over HTML is modular.

The main page displayes the parent layer rules - 

The "Action" column indicates whether it is an inline layer. If you click on the link, you will navigate to the rules of that inline layer - 

Hope that this clarifies how the tool works.

Robert.
