Splunk Enterprise Security: SA-NetworkProtection -- Can we update a CSV to include src_up and dest_ip columns?

Path Finder

Pondering if the prohibited_traffic.csv lookup used by SA-NetworkProtection in Enterprise Security could be updated to have the src_ip and dest_ip columns to allow me to define acceptable usage of a port currently deemed prohibited.

Current header for the csv file is:

transport,src_category,dest_category,src_pci_domain,dest_pci_domain,dest_port,is_prohibited,is_secure,note

Proposing:

transport,src_ip,dest_ip,src_category,dest_category,src_pci_domain,dest_pci_domain,dest_port,is_prohibited,is_secure,note

Setup the example:

Let’s say we have two systems on our internal network, 172.1.1.15 (desktop) and 172.1.2.15(server). Bob, who uses the desktop 172.1.1.15 RDP’s to 172.1.2.15 once a month to do a report. Under the current configuration, Bob’s RDP access generates a notable event. We want to be able to put acceptable usage of a protocol in the lookup, so traffic that notable events are not created for acceptable usage. Also, would using wildcards possibly work on the src_ip and dest_ip values (example 172.1.1.0/24 or 172.1.1.*).

Example of default prohibited port definition:

tcp,unknown,*,,,3389,true,,deny_inbound_rdp_from_unknown

Example of proposed:

tcp,172.1.1.15,172.1.2.15,unknown,*,,,3389,false,,prohibit_inbound_rdp_from_unknown

Please let me know if more information is needed or there is a better way to address this item. Thank you in advance for your time.

You can add additional fields to extend the capability of the lookups in ES. If/when you do this you will also want to do a couple additional things using the rough outline provided below:
1. Configure additional Fields in lookups and schedule lookup creation - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/ES/4.7.3/Admin/Createsearchdrivenlookups
2. Configure Correlations searches to leverage lookup and scheduled Correlations Searches to create Notable Events -
