Splunk Integration

Splunk is a software platform to search, analyze, and visualize machine-generated data gathered from websites, applications, sensors, and devices.

AccuKnox integrates with Splunk and monitors your assets and sends alerts for resource misconfigurations, compliance violations, network security risks, and anomalous user activities to Splunk. To forward the events from your workspace you must have Splunk Depolyed and HEC URL generated first for Splunk Integration.

Integration of Splunk:

a. Prerequisites:

Set up Splunk HTTP Event Collector (HEC) to view alert notifications from AccuKnox in Splunk. Splunk HEC lets you send data and application events to a Splunk deployment over the HTTP and Secure HTTP (HTTPS) protocols.

  • To set up HEC, use instructions in Splunk documentation. For source type,_json is the default; if you specify a custom string on AccuKnox, that value will overwrite anything you set here.

  • Select Settings > Data inputs > HTTP Event Collector and make sure you see HEC added in the list and that the status shows that it is Enabled .
