Thanks for reply.

Below some details about the topic:

Our customer have an SIEM (security information and event management) server (based on IBM cybersecurity Qradar platform) where are collected all events related to security.

Customer requires that login and logout events in SCADA application shall be send to SIEM system through SYSLOG protocol (this protocol is not supported by Windows but there are some libraries that support this).

Does WinCCOA support the libraries described above?

The event result will be similar to the following (JSON format):

{

"Severity":"Info",
"Timestamp":"2019-03-31T12:02:05.836",
"System":"SCADA",
"Component":"SCADAGUI",
"Function":"Authentication",
"Message":"Login on SCADA by user domain\username",
"Operation":"Login",
"User":"username",
"Host":"localhost"

}

Best regards.

No but you can do that by your own. We have some customer who print out every event.

Im sure you can use some kind of REST API.

Best regards.

Hi,

Would you suggest to build a custom API manager/driver for pushing Wincc OA data to a syslog server?
Is it possible to use the SNMP manager to establish a connection to a syslog server?

Thanks,

Vaso

If you need to build an own manager for the communication to the syslog server depends on the interfaces the syslog server supports.
Please check with the vendor of the syslog server if there any interfaces which can be used.
