This App provides the following scripts:
Most sourcetypes contain authentication events of some sort. This app provides Splunk dashboards, forms, and reports which can be used to explore your authentication events across your different sourcetypes.
To do this, the app relies on the Splunk Common Information Model (CIM) for authentication events. This means that the app can report on any authentication data, as long as it has been on-boarded properly, and is available through the Authentication data model.
This app requires data model acceleration, which will use additional disk space. If you are using the Splunk App for Enterprise Security, this is already enabled, and should have been factored into your retention policies. If not, you should review the documentation on data model acceleration, how it uses disk space, and how to plan for it.
As mentioned above, the app uses the CIM for authentication events. The CIM allows you to take events from a number of sources or products, and report on them in one cohesive manner, using a common set of names for fields and event types.
Provides a starting point for exploring your authentication events. Most panels will drill-down to other pages in the application.
A view based on a single users authentication activity.
Authentication events which appear to come from a single source.
Authentication events where users are authenticating against the same destination.
Panels which focus on events which all are from the same application (win:local, ssh, vpn, etc).
A view based in the action (
unknown) from the authentication event.
Reports on default authentication occurring in the environment. See the Customization section of this document for more information about how this dashboard can be customized for your deployment.
Reports on privileged authentication occurring in the environment. See the Customization section of this document for more information about how this dashboard can be customized for your deployment.
A form for finding events based on various field values.

Because this App runs on Splunk Enterprise, all of the Splunk Enterprise system requirements apply.
This app depends on data models included in the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on, specifically the
Authentication data model. Please review the information on installing and using the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on and information on configuring the acceleration on the data model.
The Splunk Common Information Model Add-on can be downloaded from Splunkbase.
This app has been tested with versions 4.8 of the CIM add-on.
In order to make the app respond and load quickly, accelerated data models are used to provide summary data. For this data to be available, the
Authentication data model must be accelerated. Information on how to enable acceleration for the
Authentication data model can be found here. The data model must be accelerated for the length of time for which you would like to see reporting.
PAVO Authentication App for Splunk contains the following default lookup files.
We strongly suggest that if you want to use customized versions of the lookups, you create new configurations for additional lookups, rather than editing the .csv files included in the app. Splunk lookup files are not upgrade safe, so future versions of the app may contain lookup files which may overwrite your customizations.
There are two macros which may be customized to help this app fit into your environment, and make use of other lookups (possibly the ones from the Splunk App for Enterprise Security). In both of these cases, the result is that the search in the macro should output a user field which contains the users appropriate for your environment.
Used for the
Default Authentication dashboard. By default, uses the apl_aut_default_users.csv file. This list was put together from multiple sources, and may not contain all of the default users which may be available in your environment.
Used for the
Privileged Authentication dashboard. By default, uses the apl_aut_priv_users.csv file. This list was put together from multiple sources, and may not contain all of the privileged users which may be available in your environment.
