Before you begin, you’ll need: Filebeat 7 or Filebeat 6, root access

Configure McAfee ePO server to forward logs to Filebeat

You’ll need to configure McAfee ePO server to forward logs to Filebeat over port 6514.

For more information, see Register syslog servers from McAfee.

Install the McAfee certificate on your Filebeat server

McAfee ePO sends encrypted data, so you’ll need to install the McAfee certificate on the Filebeat server.

sudo mkdir /etc/filebeat/certificates
sudo openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes \
-keyout /etc/filebeat/certificates/McAfeeEpo.key -x509 \
-days 365 \
-out /etc/filebeat/certificates/McafeeEpo.crt
Download the public certificate to your credentials server

For HTTPS shipping, download the public certificate to your certificate authority folder.

sudo curl --create-dirs -o /etc/pki/tls/certs/COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt
Add TCP traffic as an input

In the Filebeat configuration file (/etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml), add TCP to the filebeat.inputs section.

Replace <<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with the token of the account you want to ship to.

# ...
- type: tcp
  max_message_size: 10MiB
  host: ""
  ssl.enabled: true
  ssl.certificate: "/etc/filebeat/certificates/McAfeeEpo.crt"
  ssl.key: "/etc/filebeat/certificates/McAfeeEpo.key"
  ssl.verification_mode: none

    logzio_codec: plain

    # Your account token. You can find your token at
    token: <<LOG-SHIPPING-TOKEN>>
    type: mcafee_epo
  fields_under_root: true
  encoding: utf-8
  ignore_older: 3h

If you’re running Filebeat 7, paste this code block. Otherwise, you can leave it out.

# ... For Filebeat 7 only ...
filebeat.registry.path: /var/lib/filebeat
- rename:
    - from: "agent"
      to: "filebeat_agent"
    ignore_missing: true
- rename:
    - from: "log.file.path"
      to: "source"
    ignore_missing: true

If you’re running Filebeat 6, paste this code block.

# ... For Filebeat 6 only ...
registry_file: /var/lib/filebeat/registry
Set as the output

If is not an output, add it now. Remove all other outputs.

Replace <<LISTENER-HOST>> with the host for your region. For example, if your account is hosted on AWS US East, or if hosted on Azure West Europe.

# ...
  hosts: ["<<LISTENER-HOST>>:5015"]
    certificate_authorities: ['/etc/pki/tls/certs/COMODORSADomainValidationSecureServerCA.crt']
Start Filebeat

Start or restart Filebeat for the changes to take effect.

Check for your logs

Give your logs some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Kibana.

If you still don’t see your logs, see log shipping troubleshooting.
