I have asked to look for a solution, we want to receive alert based on specific file download via http, we have the file MD5 or SHA1 hash value. Can I do this with a PAN? The filename could change, I don't know the file size but I have the file hash value..
Thanks for your helps in advanced,
The Palo Alto Networks firewall performs stream-based inspection of file transfers, so no proxy functionality is applied, hence no sha or md hash is collected. We can, however, identify files by all kinds of other means. Could there perhaps be any other identifiable markers, watermarks, headers, propietary strings of data in the file? these could be easily added to a custom app or threat profile, or as a data filtering profile.
