Minemeld Feed Password OR api security

L1 Bithead

Hi we have used minemeld for some monthes and i figured out that i want to tighten the security even more.

The question that then arose was the posibility to generate an api key or an user based authentication for my output indicators


I don't know or think it matters but we run minemeld in two datacenters with mirroring and global loadbalancing.
The servers are placed in one of our DMZ Zones.
We have agents on our internal network that pulls the feeds from ether node x or y in DMZ (active active)
And it is this string i want to have tighter security on.




Feed map if it matters




I see below errors in log



Server certificate authentication failed for EDL name<TEST-PASS> ip/fqdn<https://abc.com/feeds/TEST-HC-PASS> Common name of
the server certificate <abc.com> reason(26)<unsupported certificate purpose>

you might have forgotten to add the SAN section in the certificate (HostName) to have the same value as the CN.  Almost all SSL Client libraries (PANOS EDL client between them) validate the DNS hostname against the SAN section instead of the CN.

(as per RFC 6125, published in '2011 the validator must check SAN first, and if SAN exists, then CN should not be checked)






@xhoms I added the Host Name and Ip fields but it still doesn't work. However i noticed below message in system logs.


event id: tls-edl-auth-failure

Reason: "unsupported certificate purpose"

@xhoms Thanks for pointing out to certs. It was the way CA had been generated was causing the issue.

i created an empty file called 30-feeds-auth.yml and then used that command and it said 'command not found'


is there another step? 

The command is not working i have installed minemeld via docker please help
