Integration between CDL and Rapid7 InsightIDR not working

L0 Member

I am working on the integration between CDL and R7 IDR SIEM and this is not working. I don't get pass the test connection on CDL.  


I am getting connection time out, I have followed these steps but the syslog server seems to be missing the trsuted certificate needed for communication with CDL. The machine is an Ubuntu machine and I have generated a cert using openssl req -x509 command. 

Can anyone share if have don this integration before, and how can I get a cert from the trusted certificates for CDL?


Thank you

Hi Tamara


Check Step 11. You can download client and CA cert and use them in NXLog app.
