Logging levels

Palo Alto is currently logging URLs which includes a path such as webserver.com/code.exe?id=4 but Palo is capable of logging a message that would display just the code.exe filename as well as a content type such as application/x-octet-stream or ms-executable.  I would like to have  these FILE events. Does anyone have insight into this for a palo beginner? Any and all help is appreciated!

Re: Logging levels

Hi Jerm,

 

Yes you can do this with a file blocking profile.

 

First you will need to create a file blocking profile which can be done in the Objects tab then select file blocking on the left hand side menu.

 

Click add at the bottom to create a new profile then add in a rule to have the action 'alert' on all applications, file types etc.

 

Give the profile a name and click ok.

Go to your security policies under the policies tab and select the policy in which your traffic is hitting. In the actions tab of the selected policy, you can choose your new file blocking profile from the drop down if you select profiles.

 

Add file blocking to security policyAdd file blocking to security policy

 

Click commit in the top right hand corner to push the changes down to the data plane and make them active.

 

Let me know if this helps,

Ben
