Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Sumo Logic Integration

  • Last updated on

Sumo is a third-party log management and analytics service, transforming your data into sources of operations, security, and compliance intelligence. The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall app provides a dashboard to monitor actions, IP addresses, and rule and application usage. Data is imported into Sumo via syslog streaming of the Firewall logs.

Before You Begin

Configure Syslog Streaming on a Barracuda CloudGen Firewall

Configure and enable syslog streaming for every Barracuda CloudGen Firewall you want to include in the Sumo app.

Step 1.1. Enable Syslog Streaming
  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Infrastructure Services > Syslog Streaming.
  2. Click Lock.
  3. Set Enable the Syslog service to yes.

  4. Click Send Changes and Activate.
Step 1.2. Configure Logdata Filters

Define profiles specifying the log file types to be transferred / streamed.

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Infrastructure Services > Syslog Streaming.
  2. In the left menu, select Logdata Filters.
  3. Click Lock.
  4. Click + to add a new filter.
  5. Enter an expressive Name that refers to Sumo, e.g., SumoFilter.
  6. Click OK.
  7. The Filters window opens.
  8. Click + in the Data Selection table and select Firewall_Audit_Log.

    Fatal_log and Panic_log data can also be streamed to the Sumo server but are currently not processed by the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall Sumo app.
  9. In the Affected Box Logdata section, select All from the Data Selector drop-down menu.
  10. In the Affected Service Logdata section, select All from the Data Selector list.
  11. Click OK.
  12. Click Send Changes and Activate.

Step 1.3. Configure the Logstream Destinations

Configure the data transfer settings for the Sumo server. You can optionally choose to send all syslog data via an SSL-encrypted connection.

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Infrastructure Services > Syslog Streaming.
  2. In the left menu, select Logstream Destinations.
  3. Click Lock.
  4. Click + in the Destinations table.
  5. The Destinations window opens.
  6. For Name, enter an expressive name that refers to Sumo, e.g., Sumo.
  7. Click OK.
  8. The window for configuring the specific destination to Sumo is displayed.
  9. Configure the syslog-ng server logstream destination:
    1. Logstream Destination – Select explicit-IP.
    2. Destination – Enter the IP address of the syslog-ng server that will be forwarding logs to Sumo.
    3. Destination Port – Enter 5140 for plaintext of 5141 for SSL-encrypted connections.
    4. Transmission Mode – Select TCP or UDP (only for unencrypted connections).
    5. (optional) Explicit Source IP – Enter the management IP address of the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, or leave blank for the CloudGen Firewall to do a routing lookup to determine the sender IP address.
    6. (optional) Use SSL Encapsulation – Select yes to send the syslog stream over an SSL-encrypted connection.
    7. (optional) Peer SSL Certificate – Import the SSL certificate configured on the syslog-ng server for this stream.
    8. Override Node Name – Select no.
  10. Click OK.

  11. Click Send Changes and Activate.
Step 1.4. Configure Logdata Streams

Create a logdata stream configuration combining the previously configured Log Destinations and Log Filters.

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Infrastructure Services > Syslog Streaming.
  2. In the left menu, select Logdata Streams.
  3. Click Lock.
  4. Click + in the Streams table.
  5. Enter a Name and click OK.
  6. The Streams window opens.
  7. In the Log Destinations table, click + and select the Log Destination created in Step 1.3, e.g., Sumo.
  8. In the Log Filters table, click + and select the Log Filter created in Step 1.2, e.g., SumoFilter.

  9. Click OK.
  10. Click Send Changes and Activate.
Step 1.5 Configure WebLog Streaming (optional)

As a first step, you must activate web log streaming:

  1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Configuration Tree > Box > Infrastructure Services > Syslog Streaming.
  2. In the left menu, select Logdata Streams.
  3. Click Lock.
  4. Enable Web Log Streaming – Select yes.

As the second step, you must configure the web log syslog streaming:

  1. Streaming Protocol – Select TCP or UDP (only for unencrypted connections).
  2. Destination IP Address – Enter the IP address of the syslog-ng server that will be forwarding logs to Sumo.
  3. Destination Port – Enter 5140 for plaintext or 5141 for SSL-encrypted connections.
  4. SSL ... (optional) – Configure the key and certificates to send logs to this server.
Step 1.6 Configure Audit and Reporting

Configure the settings for log policies.

  1. Go to your CloudGen firewall > Infrastructure Services > General Firewall Configuration.
  2. In the Configuration Mode section of the left menu, click Switch to Advanced View.
  3. In the left menu, click Audit and Reporting.
  4. Click Lock.
  5. In the section Statistics Policy, set Generate Dashboard Information to yes.
  6. In the section Statistics Policy, set Generate Monitor Information to yes.

  7. In the Log Policy section, set Application Control Logging to Log-All-Applications.
  8. In the Log Policy section, set Activity Log Mode to Log-Pipe-Separated-Value-List.
  9. In the Log Policy section, set Activity Log Data to Log-Info-Text.
  10. In the Log Policy section, set Log Level to Full-Logging.

All firewall log data is now being streamed to Sumo via the syslog-ng server.

Enable Application Logging in the Firewall

Application data is collected on a per-access-rule basis. Set the Application Log Policy to Log All Applications in the Advanced Firewall Rule Settings for each access rule that matches traffic you want to include in the data collected on the Sumo server.

For more information, see Advanced Access Rule Settings.
