Splunk Search

How to extract source and destination IP fields?


I am trying to configure various search fields for a firewall log from the field extractor but Splunk is pulling up some incorrect results. Any help would be appreciated. The two images are examples of the logs.

Here is the expression that incorrectly pulls up some results.

Second Extraction: https://regex101.com/r/43d4OA/1

Obviously, if you provide a full log, I could help more, but this should get you started.

Also, check this out: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.2/SearchReference/Scrub

And if you want a CIM compliant TA for Cisco ASA, I would try: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1620/

Odds are, the Splunk extractions are better.

What results are you getting and what do you expect?

A copy-and-paste of the event text is more helpful than a screen shot.

As richgalloway mentioned copy past would be usefull. By the title I assume you are looking for the source and destination fields.

For your first example inside:(?<src_ip>[^\/]+)\/(?<src_port>\d+) dst outside:(?<dest_ip>[^\/]+)\/(?<dest_port>\d+) might be a fitting regex.

something something ... deny tcp src inside: dst outside:111.222.333.444/555 .... 

I personally would go with another extraction for your other example since both events are not quite similar but I'm sure someone else would combine both.

For the second example permitted \w+ \w+\/(?<src_ip>[^\(]+)\(\w+\) -> outside\/(?<dest_ip>[^\(]+) might fit.

something something ... permitted udp dmz/111.222.333.444(123) -> outside/ ....
