    Splunk for Cisco Security is a container app which exposes the searches, reports and dashboards from the following Cisco add-ons on Splunk Base*

  • Splunk for Cisco Firewalls (FWSM, ASA or PIX)
  • Splunk for Cisco IPS
  • Splunk for Cisco IronPort Web Security
  • Splunk for Cisco IronPort E-mail Security
  • Splunk for Cisco Client Security Agent
  • Splunk for Cisco MARS Archives
    *In adition to the add-ons you will need to install the MAXMIND app in order to translate external IPs to Geo info for the flash maps and geo based reports to work
    The app can be found here: Geo Lookup Script


    Understanding additional Splunk for Cisco Security content

    The landing page of the app provides an overall view of your Cisco security events in real time. While each add-on provides a real time dashboard where applicable the landing page is looking across all Cisco add-ons, plotting the events in real time as they happen as well as providing an overview of the src and dest IP's involved.

    There are two Geo views available on the landing page: a real-time view and a cached view of the last 24 hours updated hourly. You may modify this view to include only the events or environments that are of interest to you. In order to modify the schedule or content of the event mapping search you will need:
    Open up Manager/Searches and Reports and edit: Cisco Event Map

    If you would like to create additional map content for use in Splunk dashboards please download the Splunk for amMap flash maps add-on and documentation located here: http://www.splunkbase.com/apps/All/4.x/Add-On/app:Splunk+for+use+with+amMap+Flash+Maps

    BotNet Overview
    The BotNet Overview dashboard utilizes Cisco Firewall's BotNet filter, providing a view into the latest BotNet activity in your environment. This dashboard is driven off of a saved search that creates a cache for the dashboard every 3 hours with a Splunk enterprise license.
    To change the schedule or the time frame reported on you can edit the following search under the manager: Cisco BotNet Filter - DataCube
    The BotNet map included with this view is mapping the geo info from the destination IP of the BotNet request. This map is driven off of the results of Cisco BotNet Filter – DataCube. To make changes to the search schedule or that time frame simply edit the search.

    Global Threat Correlation Overview
    The Global Threat Correlation Overview dashboard is comprised of IPS alerts that surpass defined thresholds for a Global Threat Correlation Score. By default this is set to 0. This dashboard is driven off of a saved search that creates a cache for the dashboard every 3 hours with a Splunk enterprise license. To change the schedule, the time frame reported on, or the GTS thresh-hold you can edit the following search under the manager: Cisco IPS Global Threat Correlation - DataCube
