About the Splunk Add-on for OSSEC

Version 4.0.1
Vendor Products OSSEC 2.7 or later

The Splunk Add-on for OSSEC allows a Splunk software administrator to collect alert events from OSSEC servers over syslog. The add-on collects the following alert data from OSSEC:

  • File Integrity Management (FIM) data
  • FTP data
  • su data
  • ssh data
  • Windows data, including audit and logon information

At this time, the add-on does not support data collection for OSSEC daemon logs, agent logs, or logs from the active response module.

After the Splunk platform indexes the events, you can consume the data using the prebuilt panels included with the add-on. This add-on provides the inputs and CIM-compatible knowledge to use with other Splunk apps, such as Splunk Enterprise Security and the Splunk App for PCI Compliance.
