Traps Log Ingestion on Panorama

Panorama can now serve as a Syslog receiver that can ingest logs from the Traps ESM components using Syslog over TCP, UDP, or SSL. When you forward security events that the Traps agents report to the ESM Server on to Panorama, Panorama correlates discrete security events that occur on the endpoints with what’s happening on the network to trace any suspicious or malicious activity across the endpoints and the firewalls. This integrated view gives you more context on the chronology of events and the evidence you need to detect, identify, and respond to an incident.
Panorama virtual appliance in legacy mode cannot ingest Traps logs.
  1. Define the log ingestion profile on Panorama.
    1. Select PanoramaLog Ingestion Profile, and click Add.
    2. Enter a Name for the profile.
    3. Click Add and enter the details for the ESM Server. You can add up to four ESM Servers to a profile.
    4. Enter a Source Name.
    5. Specify the Port on which Panorama will be listening for syslog messages. The range is 23000 to 23999.
    6. Select the Transport layer protocol—TCP, UDP, or SSL.
    7. Select Traps_ESM for External Log type and 3.4.0+ from the Version drop-down.
    As Traps log formats are updated, the updated log definitions will be available through content updates on Panorama.

  2. Attach the log ingestion profile to a Collector Group.
    1. Select PanoramaCollector GroupsLog Ingestion and Add the log ingestion profile so that the Collector Group can receive logs from the ESM Server(s) listed in the profile.
      If you are enabling SSL for secure syslog communication between Panorama and the ESM Server(s), you must attach an certificate for secure Syslog communication between the ESM Servers and the Managed Collectors in the Collector Group. In PanoramaManaged CollectorsGeneral, select the certificate to use for Inbound Certificate for Secure Syslog.
