Log Exporter guide

Hello All,We have recently released the Log Exporter solution.A few posts have already gone up and the full documentation can be found at sk122323.However, I've received a few questions both on and offline and decided to create a sort of log exporter guide.But before I begin I’d like to point out that I’m not a Checkpoint spokesperson, nor is this an official checkpoint thread.I was part of the Log Exporter team and am creating this post as a public service.I’ll try to only focus on the current release, and please remember anything I might say regarding future releases is not binding or guaranteed. Partly because I’m not the one who makes those decisions, and partly because priorities will shift based on customer feedback, resource limitations and a dozen other factors. The current plans and the current roadmap is likely to drastically change over time.And just for the fun of it, I’ll mostly use the question-answer format in this post (simply because I like it and it’s convenient). Log Exporter – what is it?PerformanceFiltersFilters: Example 1Filters: Example 2Gosh darn it, I forgot something! (I'll edit and fill this in later)Feature request

Forescout NAC Integration with checkpoint EDR (Endpoint)

Hi Team,As of my old query which one is to integration with Checkpoint Management Server which gives us the Firewall Threat Prevention detection and Remediates information on ForeScout.Link: My requirement is about to see the information on ForeScout of all the Endpoint Client which installed in our Infra.Information needs to visible on ForeScout such as:-1. Endpoint Client Version2. Checkpoint Endpoint Services3. Encryption Status of all connected clients4. Antimalware UpdatesAs of now we able to achieve point first, Second and third. CP Endpoint Version Informationscreenshot 02 We try to add the Checkpoint EDR on ForeScout antivirus policy but unable to see the Checkpoint vendor name but we able to see the checkpoint vendor on the encryption section on ForeScout policy and after added the checkpoint on encryption policy (ForeScout) then we able to see the encryption status. (Above Screenshot 02).But as I check with ForeScout team and find that a custom policy needs to be created on ForeScout for Antimalware visibility in order to posture the Checkpoint Antimalware updates but ForeScout required a DAT file from Checkpoint Endpoint Agent.But I unable to find which DAT file required also that file must be stored the Anti-Malware Signature version information (in Checkpoint Endpoint). Basically, other third-party vendors have contained DAT file in each of the machines and that DAT file will usually update once a new signature fetched by the client from Server.Kindly help whether it's possible to see on ForeScout that, whether the Checkpoint Antimalware Signature is up-to-date or not Because the NAC agent have that functionality to move the machine to an isolated network if the Endpoint machine antimalware or antivirus signature is not up to date and this functionality is very important for most of the organization. Thanks and Regards@Chinmaya_Naik

R80.30 Netflow Setup

Pre R80.10 Netflow worked fine.Now on R80.30 I have two flows that are identical -- but one only shows Outbound and the other only shows Inbound BUT -- and this is perplexing -- it is the exact same traffic for both inbound and outbound flows -- i.e. source and destination are the same.Yes.. let that simmer for a while.I have one rule that's configured on the firewall and it's a rule that a lot of web traffic hits on.I'm using ManageEngine's Netflow Analyzer.For this traffic, I would expect there should be one flow and it should include both inbound and outbound traffic on the one interface (the internal interface it's hitting).

SmartEvent - deleting of archived pdf reports

Hello,Customer has R80.30 management server (JHA Take 111) and there are about ten pdf SmartEvent reports scheduled and sent via email everyday. Right now, there are more than 2000 pdf reports stored on management server. I want to delete the old reports, but I'm able to delete only one by one in SmartConsole, so to delete all reports it would take a lot of time. Is is possible to delete multiple stored pdf SmartEvent reports?Thank you

Custom Reports Help

Hi everyone,I've recently upgraded a customer from R77.30 to R80.30.  Previously they had SmartReporter and had reports emailed in automatically every month.  I've had to start again from scratch recreating the reports in R80.30, and I'm really struggling to get my head around how to recreate some of the reports.  R80.x reporting is sooooo different.Here is one of the old reports that the customer still wants.  Can anyone tell me how to recreate this?  I've tried all sorts and can't figure out how to get a table showing the same info as before.Thanks,Matt

DNS Trap Protection

Hello Guys, I would like to follow up on the following posts : What we would like to find out is how log firewalls keeps the information about malicious domain in cache?DNS request is changed for Bogus IP by firewall as long as the malicious domain is in cache.The problem we see is that the cache is maybe too short as "Connection was allowed because background classification mode was set. See sk74120 for more information." for the same malicious domain appears in logs too often.We would expect to see this classification event once and then lots of changes to Bogus IP. But that is not the case.There is no documentation on CP covering this info or how to change it. Or we have just overlooked it.In our understanding this way lots of malicious activities are just allowed only because firewall needs to let go of DNS resolution requests because those needs to be classified in the first place over and over again.         Thanks and regards, Juraj

Cannot add log server to smartevent

We have configured SmartEvent R80.10 (dedicated) and by following sk110894 gotten av few domains and logs into SmartEvent. (We get the "Correlating logs to events. The log correlation unit is not able to read logs from Log server: . Please run 'cpstat cpsead' " but we see logs and events, so we're assuming this is cosmetic). However, we are _only_ so far able to add logs from domains where the firewall logs to a dedicated log server. If the firewalls in the domain we add log to the management, it does not appear in "General settings -> Inital settings -> Correlation Units -> Add (select domain where firewall logs to managment (not do dedicated log server). Anybody seen anything similar.
