This app provides field extraction, cim mapping(authentication) for CA Privileged Access Manager (PAM) in Splunk.

The field extraction accepts both Splunk native tcp/udp connections and rsyslog style syslog.

CA PAM supports both syslog and xsuite for Splunk, we do recommend use syslog which contains more information for investigation purpose.

Configuring Rsyslog

The timestamp of syslog format from CA PAM is not aligned. If you use rsyslog, you can reconfigure your rsyslog.conf as following:

For Redhat 8:
#module(load="builtin:omfile" Template="RSYSLOG_TraditionalFileFormat")
$template CustomFormat,"%timegenerated% %HOSTNAME% %syslogtag%%msg:::sp-if-no-1st-sp%%msg:::drop-last-lf%\n"
module(load="builtin:omfile" Template="CustomFormat")

For Redhat 7:
#$ActionFileDefaultTemplate RSYSLOG_TraditionalFileFormat
$template CustomFormat,"%timegenerated% %HOSTNAME% %syslogtag%%msg:::sp-if-no-1st-sp%%msg:::drop-last-lf%\n"
$ActionFileDefaultTemplate CustomFormat

Useful macros

We do provided different useful macros which can correlate different logs. This is the most powerful part of this apps. You should explore those macros. Those name of macros are starting with CA_PAM*.

Also, we have provided some example inside macros.conf, you can extend the power by defining the correct lookup files and AD domain.
