Configuration Overview

The configuration of  Check Point Provider-1 depends on the type of log that you want sent to AccelOps. There are two options:

 Domain level audit logs, which contain information such as domain creation, editing, etc.

Firewall logs, which include both audit log for firewall policy creation, editing, etc., and traffic logs

These logs are generated and stored among four different components:

Multi-Domain Server (MDS), where domains are configured and certificates have to be generated

Multi-Domain Log Module (MLM), where domain logs are stored

Customer Management Add-on (CMA), the customer management module

Customer Log Module (CLM), which consolidates logs for an individual customer/domain

Discover Paired Components on the Same Collector or Supervisor

Discovery of the MLM requires the certificate of the MDS, and discovery of the CLM requires the certificate of the CMA. Make sure that you discover the MDS & MLM pair, and the CMA & CLM pair, on the same Supervisor or Collector. If you attempt to discover them on separate Collectors, discovery will fail.

Component Configuration for Domain-Level Audit Logs

  1. Configure MDS.
  2. Use the Client SIC obtained while configuring MDS to configure MLM.
  3. Pull logs from MLM.

Component Configuration for Firewall Logs

  1. Configure CMA.
  2. Use the Client SIC obtained while configuring CMA to configure CLM.
  3. Pull logs from CLM.

If you want to pull firewall logs from a domain, you have to configure CLM for that domain.

See these topics for instructions on how to configure each component for Check Point Provider-1 firewalls.

  4. show context
  5. show ip route
  6. enable

NetFlow

NetFlow is an optimized protocol for collecting high volume traffic logs. You should configure NetFlow with ASM, the ASA device manager.

Set Up AccelOps as a NetFlow Receiver

  1. Login to ASDM.
  2. Go to Configuration > Device Management > Logging > Netflow.
  3. Under Collectors, click
  4. For Interface, select the ASA interface over which NetFlow will be sent to AccelOps.
  5. For IP Address or Host Name, enter the IP address or host name for your AccelOps virtual appliance that will receive the NetFlow logs.
  6. For UDP Port, enter 2055.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Select Disable redundant syslog messages.

This prevents the netflow equivalent events from being also sent via syslog.

  1. Click Apply.

Create a NetFlow Service Policy

  1. Go to Configuration > Firewall > Service Policy Rules.
  2. Click Add.

The Service Policy Wizard will launch.

  1. Select Global – apply to all interfaces, and then click Next.
  2. For Traffic Match Criteria, select Source and Destination IP Address, and then click Next.
  3. For Source and Destination, select Any, and then click Next.
  4. For Flow Event Type, select All.
  5. For Collectors, select the AccelOps virtual appliance IP address.
  6. Click OK.

Configure the Template Refresh Rate

This is an optional step. The template refresh rate is the number of minutes between sending a template record to AccelOps. The default is 30 minutes, and in most cases this is sufficient. Since flow templates are dynamic, AccelOps cannot process a flow until it knows the details of the corresponding template. This command may not always be needed, but if flows are not showing up in AccelOps, even if tcpdump indicates that  they are, this is worth trying.

You can find out more about configuring NetFlow in the Cisco support forum.
