The cystomer wants to configure SpanVA to regularly retrieve information from an external mapping file that correlates device IP addresses with the identities of the device users
When you view the user activities extracted from the log files in Audit, they are associated with the user IDs instead of the original IP addresses. If you have enabled the CloudSOC anonymization feature, the Audit app displays machine-generated IDs in place of the actual user IDs. If necessary, you can reveal the actual user IDs with approval from a Data Protection Officer (DPO). You can create the mapping file manually, or you can configure your DHCP server or another network device to produce the file. For a sample mapping file, on the Identity Mappings tab of the SpanVA web interface, then click Show Sample File Info . Detailed information about creating the mapping file is beyond the scope of this Tech Note.
Note: This feature is only directly supported for Blue Coat Proxy SG and Cisco ASA-series firewalls. However, it is also supported for the Flex universal log processor, which processes logs for virtually any firewall or proxy.
