Configuring Charts

The chart type determines the data configured and displayed in the chart. You can create several charts for specific to data collected by devices in JSA Risk Manager.

The following chart types are specific to JSA Risk Manager:

Connection Charts

You can use the Connections chart to view network connection information. You can base your charts on data from saved connection searches from the Risks tab.

You can customize the data that you want to display in the generated report. You can configure the chart to plot data over a configurable time period. This functionality helps you to detect connection trends.

The following table provides configuration information for the Connections Chart container.

Device Rules Charts

You can use the Device Rules chart to view firewall rules and the event count of firewall rules triggered in your network.

Device Rule reports allows you to create a report for the following firewall rules:

  • Most active accept device rules

  • Most active deny device rules

  • Least active accept device rules

  • Least active deny device rules

  • Unused device rules

  • Shadowed device rules

The reports that you generate allow you to understand what rules are accepted, denied, unused, or untriggered across a single device, a specific adapter, or multiple devices. Reports allow JSA Risk Manager to automate reporting about the status of your device rules and display the reports on the JSA console.

This functionality helps you identify how rules are used on your network devices.

To create a Device Rules Chart container, configure values for the following parameters:

Table 2: Device Rules Chart Parameters

Parameter

Description

Container Details - Device Rules

Limit Rules to Top

From the list, select the number of rules to be displayed in the generated report.

For example, if you limit your report to the top 10 rules, then create a report for most used accept rules across all devices, the report returns 10 results. The results contain a list of the 10 most used accept rules based on the event count across all devices that are visible to JSA Risk Manager.

Type

Select the type of device rules to display in the report. Options include:

Most Used Accept Rules—Displays the most used accept rules by event count for a single device or a group of devices. This report lists the rules with highest accepted event counts, in descending order, for the time frame you specified in the report.

Most Used Deny Rules—Displays the most used deny rules by event count for a single device or a group of devices. This report lists the rules with the highest deny event counts, in descending order, for the time frame you specified in the report.

Unused Rules Displays any rules for a single device or a group of devices that are unused. Unused rules have zero event counts for the time frame you specified for the report.

Least Used Accept Rules—Displays the least used accept rules for a single device or a group of devices. This report lists rules with the lowest accept event counts, in ascending order, for the time frame you specified in the report.

Least Used Deny Rules—Displays the least used deny rules for a single device or a group of devices. This report lists rules with the lowest denied event counts, in ascending order, for the time frame you specified in the report.

Shadowed Rules—Displays any rules for a single device that can never trigger because the rule is blocked by a proceeding rule. The results display a table of the rule creating the shadow and any the rules that can never trigger on your device because they are shadowed by a proceeding rule on the device.

Note:

Shadowed rule reports can only be run against a single device. These rules have zero event counts for the time frame you specified for the report and are identified with an icon in the Status column.

Date/Time Range

Select the time frame for your report. The options include:

Current Configuration—The results of the Device Rules report is based on the rules that exist in the current device configuration. This report displays rules and event counts for the existing device configuration.

The current configuration for a device is based on the last time Configuration Source Management backed up your network device.

Interval—The results of the Device Rules report is based on the rules that existed during the time frame of the interval. This report displays rules and event counts for the specified interval from the last hour to 30 days.

Specific Range—The results of the Device Rules report is based on the rules that existed between the start time and end time of the time range. This report displays rules and event counts for the specified time frame.

Timezone

Select the timezone you want to use as a basis for your report. The default timezone is based on the configuration of your JSA console.

When configuring the Timezone parameter for your report, consider the location of the devices associated with the reported data. If the report uses data spanning multiple time zones, the data used for the report is based on the specific time range of the time zone.

For example, if your JSA console is configured for Eastern Standard Time (EST) and you schedule a daily report between 1pm and 3pm and set the timezone as Central Standard Time (CST), the results in the report contains information from 2pm and 4pm EST.

Targeted Data Selection

Targeted Data Selection is used to filter the Date/Time Range to a specific value. Using the Targeted Data Selection options, you can create a report to view your device rules over a custom defined period of time, with the option to only include data from the hours and days that you select.

For example, you can schedule a report to run from October 1 to October 31 and view your most active, least active or unused rules and their rule counts that occur during your business hours, such as Monday to Friday, 8 AM to 9 PM.

Note:

The filter details only display when you select the Targeted Data Selection check box in the Report Wizard.

Format

Select the format for your device rules report. The options include:

One aggregate report for specified devices—This report format aggregates the report data across multiple devices.

For example, if you create a report to display the top ten most denied rules, then an aggregate report displays the top ten most denied rules across all of the devices you have selected for the report. This report returns 10 results in total for the report.

One report per device—This report format displays the report data for one device.

For example, if you create a report to display the top ten most denied rules, then an aggregate report displays the top ten most denied rules for each device you have selected for the report. This report returns the top 10 results for every device selected for the report. If you selected 5 devices, the report returns 50 results.

Note:

Shadowed rule reports are only capable of displaying one report per device.
