Linux Secure Technology Add-On

Splunk Cloud
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
This app provides field extractions and normalisation to the Common Information Model for /var/log/secure and /var/log/auth.log (linux_secure sourcetype). It is intended to replace the security-relevant aspects of the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux (Splunk_TA_nix) and as such it's strongly recommended that the Splunk_TA_nix app be removed from your search head before installing this app as they may conflict. This app requires no configuration and need only be installed on search heads (i.e. contains no index-time transforms).

Be sure to also check out the certified sudo (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3038/), iptables (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3089/) and auditd (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2642/) apps.

For Linux performance monitoring, please see: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3412/

This app provides linux_secure field extractions and normalisation to the Common Information Model.

Simply install this app on your search head (no configuration required).

Further documentation is provided in the wiki here: https://github.com/doksu/TA-linux_secure/wiki

May this app improve the security of organisations great and small.
