R80.20 Log Exporter Feature

This video elaborate on Check Point's R80.20 log exporter feature, introducing an easy and secure method for exporting Check Point logs to 3rd party SIEM applications, using various protocols (like TCP or UDP) and formats (like syslog, CEF, or LEEF)

Splunk also has a Opsec Connection (LEA) to receive the logs. Is there an advantage to use this export feature?

Re: R80.20 Log Exporter Feature

While we will continue to support LEA for the time being, Log Exporter is going to be the recommended method for exporting logs to third party SIEMs going forward.

Re: R80.20 Log Exporter Feature

Thanks. Is there an SK for this? Perhaps that and a link to that or to the admin guide with the info about that would  be beneficial in this thread.

The official SK: Log Exporter - Check Point Log Export 

The "canonical" thread on CheckMates: Log Exporter guide

And so the loop is closed and it's all brought together.

Nice one, thank you Dameon.

Re: R80.20 Log Exporter Feature

Does log exporter on R80.20 configuration on MLM sends logs with source IP of each configured CLM.

We had this requirement for long and lately few months back R&D suggested that it will be in R80.20.

We recently upgraded to R80.20 though still see MLM ip as source on syslog for all CLM.

We want separate connection with each CLM IP itself.

Pls suggest

It's not in place in r80.20, in our case we send traffic from each CLM via different port to our SIEM and based on port we know from which CLM logs are comming to SIEM.

Thanks Martin -

 

I got the idea, though as I checked, if I use TCP as protocol for Syslog, I can see CLM IP as desired but not the case with UDP(though need to check myself).

 

Will update final result.

It doesn't matter if tcp/udp it's still flows from MLM server ip.

Re: R80.20 Log Exporter Feature

I checked it on R80.20 MLM, I could see connection with CLM IP if used with TCP.
