Syslog is an event logging protocol that applications use to send messages to a central location, such as a SIEM or a syslog collector, for data retention and security investigations. With Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes, you can send alerts and audit events using the syslog protocol.
The following steps represent a high-level workflow for integrating Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes with a syslog events receiver:
Set up a syslog events receiver to receive alerts.
Use the receiver’s address and port number to set up notifications in the Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes.
After the configuration, Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes automatically sends all violations and audit events to the configured syslog receiver.
Create a new syslog integration in Red Hat Advanced Cluster Security for Kubernetes (RHACS).
On the RHACS portal, navigate to Platform Configuration → Integrations.
Scroll down to the Notifier Integrations section and select Syslog.
Click New Integration (add icon).
Enter a name for Integration Name.
Select the Logging Facility value from
Enter your Receiver Host address and Receiver Port number.
If you are using TLS, turn on the Use TLS toggle.
If your syslog receiver uses a certificate that is not trusted, turn on the Disable TLS Certificate Validation (Insecure) toggle. Otherwise, leave this toggle off.
Click Add new extra field to add extra fields. For example, if your syslog receiver accepts objects from multiple sources, type
rhacs in the Key and Value fields.
You can filter using the custom values in your syslog receiver to identify all alerts from RHACS.
Select Test (
checkmark icon) to send a test message to verify that the integration with your generic webhook is working.
Select Create (
