Integrating Centrify Server Suite with SIEM Tools – Part 3, integration with IBM QRadar

11 April,19 at 11:50 AM

This is a follow on to my previous posts on integrating Centrify Server Suite events into SIEM tools & integrating Centrify Server Suite events into Splunk. In this post, we cover how to  integrate these events into your existing IBM QRadar deployment. 

 

Getting Started

First, how do I get Centrify events into IBM QRadar? Centrify events are available locally in standard logs either in *Nix syslogs or Windows event logs. Follow IBM QRadar's documentation to forward data into QRadar from Windows & *Nix machines.

 

Shown below, a Windows and Linux collector configured for deployment within QRadar.  Follow the Centrify QRadar Installation guide to configure the collectors.

Normalising events

Install the Centrify log extension in QRadar to normalize Centrify events, follow again the instructions in the Centrify QRadar Installation guide. Once the events are centrally collected and indexed, you can find all the Centrify events by searching for "centrifyEventID" in the quick filter as shown below.

Categorizing events

We've taken over a dozen centrify events and categorised them into the QRadar's authentication category. This will enable any Security Analyst to easily correlate Authentication events from accross vendors within your enterprise. Find below a search query for Centrify events in the Authentication category.

To summarize, CSS Standard edition captures all logon and privilege activity on any machines that have a CSS agent running – the event is stored in CEF format in Syslog on Linux/ UNIX machines and is stored in Event logs on Windows machines. You can now ingest Centrify events to IBM QRadar and normalize the Centrify events leveraging our log extension, easily.

 

In my next post I’ll demonstrate how one could leverage these events in your HP ArcSight Deployment. Meanwhile, you can try these integrations today with a free trial of Centrify Server Suite Standard Edition.
