Before you configure an Network Security (XGS) appliance in JSA, you must configure remote syslog alerts for your IBM Network Security (XGS) rules or policies to forward events to JSA.

Configuring IBM Network Security (XGS) Alerts

All event types are sent to JSA by using a remote syslog alert object that is LEEF enabled.

Remote syslog alert objects can be created, edited, and deleted from each context in which an event is generated. Log in to the Network Security (XGS) local management interface as admin to configure a remote syslog alert object, and go to one of the following menus:

  • Manage >System Settings >System Alerts (System events)

  • Secure >Network Access Policy (Access events)

  • Secure >IPS Event Filter Policy (Security events)

  • Secure >Intrusion Prevention Policy (Security events)

  • Secure >Network Access Policy >Inspection >Intrusion Prevention Policy

In the IPS Objects, the Network Objects pane, or the System Alerts page, complete the following steps.

  1. Click New >Alert >Remote Syslog.
  2. Select an existing remote syslog alert object, and then click Edit.
  3. Configure the following options:
