THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT v8.0 and later 

DISCUSSION

The following Advanced Properties enable or disable auditing of specific items:

  • AuditBannedSocketConnections - auditing of banned socket connections. Default = true (audit); false to skip
  • AuditFailedAuthforNonExistingUsernames - auditing of all invalid username authentication attempts. Set to false by default; true to audit
  • AuditFailedAuthforUsernameRoot - auditing of ‘root’ and ‘administrator’ invalid username authentication attempts. Set to false by default; true to audit
  • AuditFailedSocketConnectionsOther - auditing of other failed socket connections. Set to true (audit) by default; false to disable
  • AuditIgnoreFailedAuthforNonExistingUsernames - auditing of usernames that are not a user in EFT; set to true to audit (introduced in EFT Arcus in v7.4.14)
  • AuditIsInternal - auditing of non-CRUD (IsInternal) transactions. Set to false by default. When set to true, EFT will audit a row to protocol commands for resources that have an IsInternal flag set to 1. For example, IsInternalflag is set to 1 for HTTP protocol GET requests for reserved paths.
  • AuditIsRESTAdmin - auditing of Administrative REST calls. Set to false by default; true to audit
  • AuditIsRESTRAMAgent - auditing of RAM REST calls. Set to false by default; true to audit
  • AuditIsRESTUSER - auditing of user-initiated REST calls. Set to false by default; true to audit
  • AuditIsRESTWorkspacesInternal - auditing of Workspaces config REST calls. Set to false by default; true to audit
  • AuditUnimportantCommands - auditing of unimportant (non CRUD) operations (HTTPS connections only). Set to false by default. When set to true, EFT will audit  to tbl_ProtocolCommands the HTTPS commands where command is "HEAD", "SIZE", "LIST", "GET", "OPTIONS", "QUIT".
  • AuditRedundantUserAndPass - auditing of username and password for S/FTP/S events. Set to true by default; true to audit
  • AuditRESTWorkspaces - auditing of Workspaces REST calls. Set to False by default; true to audit
  • AuditSuccessSocketConnections - auditing of successful socket connections. Set to False (don't audit) by default; true to audit

To enable these advanced properties

  • Add the applicable name:value pair to the AdvancedProperties.JSON file. You can add multiple name:value pairs. For example:

{
"AuditFailedAuthforNonExistingUsernames":false
"AuditRedundantUserAndPass":false
"AuditSuccessSocketConnections":false
}
