How to add the destination port value for a firewall events in splunk ?


Hi All,

Today one of the user notified that for some of the events the events the destination port field value was left blank. On further investigation on this issue, found that there are many values in the service field that are resolved services instead of port numbers. Only the values in "service" with an actual number are parsed as "dest_port" while values in "service" that are resolved as words are not included.

Actual Requirement:
Instead of the word of the service, just put the value of the port number in the logs.

Sample data:

Event Details: 1 
time=1522839628|loc=17629694|fileid=1522834250|action=accept||i/f_dir=inbound|i/f_name=bond0.905|has_accounting=0|logId=-1|log_type=log|log_sequence_num=0|is_first_for_luuid=131072|log_version=1|uuid=<5ac4b04c,00000000,14fcd00a,c0000002>|product=VPN-1 & FireWall-1|inzone=Internal|outzone=External|rule=35|rule_uid=
|rule_name=External DNS|service_id=domain-udp||s_port=23293|dst=x.x.x.x|service=domain-udp|proto=udp|xlatesrc=node1fw-cluster_External_Interface|xlatesport=43676|xlatedport=Unknown|NAT_rulenum=13|NAT_addtnl_rulenum=1|__policy_id_tag=product=VPN-1 & FireWall-1[db_tag=
Event Actions
Field name =Service
Field Value =domain-udp
Missing Field = dest_port 

In this case service field value is in word and due to this dest_port field value is left blank.

Event Details: 2
time=1522839333|loc=17636317|fileid=1522834250|action=drop||i/f_dir=inbound|i/f_name=bond0.999|has_accounting=0|logId=0|log_type=log|log_sequence_num=658|is_first_for_luuid=131072|log_version=5|,|uuid=<00000000,00000000,00000000,00000000>|product=VPN-1 & FireWall-1|__policy_id_tag=product=VPN-1 & FireWall-1[db_tag=

Field Name: Service
Field Value: 4031

In this case we are able to get the dest_port field value as 4031.

Kindly guide me how to fix this issue.

thanks in advance.

I see 2 solution directions for this:

  1. Create an automatic lookup that translates non-numeric service field entries into their numeric equivalent. If you're not familiar with how to do that, start by reading:
  2. See if you (or your firewall admin) can configure this on the Checkpoint side somehow, to only log numeric values instead of service names. If possible, that would be the option I would prefer personally.

So... you're talking about a TA/app you downloaded? Or something you built yourself?
There's a bunch of information missing...

hey xpac, we had downloaded from splunk base and renamed the add-on as per the naming standard ed followed in our organization. We have done very minor customization in it. This is the Props.conf stanza that are mapped to sourcetype=opsec.
