Authentic8 Silo Add-on for Splunk

The Authentic8 Silo Add-on for Splunk® is a technical add-on (TA) developed by Authentic8. It enables Linux deployments of Splunk® Enterprise to ingest and map logging data across one or more of their Silo Organizations.

The add-on collects and correlates all logged data from one or more Silo Organizations, allowing you to consume the data using the Splunk® Enterprise Security app or any app you create for your SOC or IT requirements. A list of all log types supported is provided in the details page.

Authentic8 Silo Add-on for Splunk® is compatible with all versions of Silo for Safe Access and Silo for Research.

NOTE: You will need to install the 3 dependencies that are specified below before installing the Add-on. If this is not done, the Add-on might not install correctly and cause issues.
- libgmp-dev
- libmpfr-dev
- libmpc-dev

NOTE: Due to required dependencies, we do not currently support Splunk Enterprise running on Windows.

This Add-on (TA) only works with on-premise Linux deployments of Splunk Enterprise and can be installed on a search head, indexer, forwarder, or single instance Splunk server. The add-on also works with Splunk Enterprise Security App as well as customer developed Splunk Apps. If you plan on using this add-on with Splunk's CIM, please make sure the CIM Package is installed.

Installation Guide
