You are looking for a list of signatures for SSIM Syslog type collectors. 


 The following collectors:  

  • CyberGuard® Firewall/VPN,
  • Nortel™ Contivity
  • Tipping Point v4.2
  • Tipping Point v4.3
  • McAfee UTM Firewall

and others do not have signatures that are unique to the 3rd Party product.  However, almost all Syslog sensor based collectors can be used in Syslog Director. But in some 3rd party products the events don't contain unique word which might be used as signature for Syslog Director Director. In this case, you can use an IP address or hostname of the device which will be included into the header of every Syslog event as Syslog Director signature. For example, if your device IP is, then all events will have a header similar to: Aug 19 17:16:03 So, each of events will have in it and you can use this as signature.  We have several collectors where we suggest using IP or hostname of the device as signature if their events don't have unique flag.

These following Syslog type collectors cannot be used with Syslog Director even if you add the IP address or Hostname:

  • F5 Big-IP - It is recommended you do not try to use Syslog Director with this collector so no signatures are needed with this collector, .

The table below contains the signatures for current SSIM Collectors.  This is meant to be a list of current Syslog Collectors signatures, but there might be newer Syslog type collectors that have been released since this table was created, please check the guide for your SSIM Event Collector for additional information.
