Blue Coat Proxy

Blue Coat ProxySG is a cloud-based product that provides users with web security. Connecting this event source to InsightIDR will enhance the security data for available for analysis.

Before You Begin

Blue Coat Security logs its data to a specific format, ELFF, which allows you to the define the order of fields of logged data. You can read about how to define the field order here: https://portal.threatpulse.com/docs/am/PDFBriefs/BCWSSPrxyFwd.pdf

In order for Blue Coat to work properly with the InsightIDR parser, please ensure that the following fields are at the front of the log like so: date time c-ip s-action sc-status cs-method cs-uri-scheme cs-uri cs(User-Agent) cs-bytes sc-bytes sc-filter-result

You can add extra fields after the initial fields, which will not affect the parser.
