Implementing Cisco Security Analytics and Logging for ASA Devices

Before you Begin

Workflow to Implement Cisco Security Analytics and Logging and Sending Events through the Secure Event Connector to the Cisco Cloud

  1. Be sure to review "Before you Begin" above to make sure your environment is properly configured.
  2. Onboard an ASA Device using username and password.
  3. Send ASA Syslog Events to the Cisco Cloud.
  4. Configuring NSEL for ASA Devices Using a CDO Macro
  5. Confirm events are visible in CDO. From the navigation bar, select Monitoring > Event Logging. Click the Live tab to view live events. 
  6. If you have a Firewall Analytics and Monitoring or Total Network Analytics and Monitoring license, continue with Analyzing Events in Stealthwatch Cloud.

Analyzing Events in Stealthwatch Cloud

If you have a Firewall Analytics and Monitoring or Total Network Analytics and Monitoring license, perform the following in addition to the previous steps:

  1. Request a Stealthwatch Cloud Portal.
  2. Deploy one or more SWC sensors to your internal network if you purchased a Total Network Analytics and Monitoring license. See Stealthwatch Cloud Sensor Deployment for Total Network Analytics and Reporting.
  3. Invite users to create SWC user accounts, tied to their Cisco Single Sign-On credentials. See Monitoring Stealthwatch Cloud Alerts Generated from Firepower Threat Defense Events.
  4. Cross-launch from CDO to SWC to monitor the SWC alerts generated from FTD events. See Monitoring Stealthwatch Cloud Alerts Generated from Firepower Threat Defense Events.

Reviewing Stealthwatch Cloud Alerts by Cross-launching from CDO

With a Firewall Analytics and Monitoring or Total Network Analytics and Monitoring license, you can cross-launch from CDO to SWC to review the alerts generated by Stealthwatch Cloud, based on FTD events.
