Hardware and software requirements for Splunk Connect for Zoom

Security requirements

The webhook technology in this product uses port 4443. Work with your network administrator to open this port.

Splunk Connect for Zoom uses the default Splunk Web self-signed certificate and private key. For security reasons and best practices, use a Trusted certification authority (CA) Signed SSL Certificate. The default certificates are located in the following directories:

  • $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/auth/splunkweb/cert.pem
  • $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/auth/splunkweb/privkey.pem

If you want to use your own SSL certificates, the best practice is to store your certificate and private key in the following directory: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/auth/<your_folder>

See About securing Splunk Enterprise with SSL to learn more about securing your Splunk configurations.

See How to get certificates signed by a third-party in the Securing Splunk Enterprise manual to learn more about how to generate the needed certificates for your trusted CA:

Zoom admin requirements

  • A running Zoom environment
  • Zoom administrator or developer account
  • Zoom permissions to create and activate a Zoom App
  • Network and OS firewall whitelist permissions

Work with your network administrator and Zoom support to whitelist the necessary Zoom network CIDR blocks, in order to ensure your Splunk platform deployment allows incoming traffic from the Zoom Webhook Event Services. For more information, see the Network Firewall or Proxy Server Settings topics in the Zoom help center.
