  1. Logging: Enhanced, Standarized Log Viewer with support for logical operators

    Please implement a reader friendly log-, and live log reader which will output any of the the text logs to a formatted output (similar to the actual paket filter live log). Should offer following features for viewing all types of logs:

    - formatted output (as paketfilter live log)
    - colored (drop, pass, block, info and so on)
    - expression filters
    - possibility to filter (do not show) logentries (similar to user portal / smtp log), where you can hide unwanted informations)

    • Reporting: Flow Monitor 2.0

      In the Flow Monitor, it would be nice to be able to click on a Host/Client, and list all of their connected Host/Clients, ports that they are using, and bandwidth used for each of those. Currently The Flow Monitor only list total traffic used by a Client/Host, but for more information the text logs have to be searched.

      It would also nice to be able to have fine grain control of that traffic (throttle and blocking) in real-time from inside the flow monitor. Options like Temporary blocks, or data caps, would all be bonus too.

        • Logging: Tamper-proof logs via Hashing

          Companies have to prove to the law that the logs are not manipulated. Hence device must hash the log files with the time stamp. We need a menu for that on UTM. For example, customers should be able to choose the needed logs through WebAdmin, and make hashing with required logs. When needed they should be able to download the hash and log files.

          • Logging: Enhanced log searching tools (Better search & filter)

            I would like to see better and more granular search options/filters for log searching.

            What if I'm interesting in a host only when it's a source and only when it goes to port 25 on another host. Today I can only give a simple search term and get way to much data back for it to be useful fast without spending too much time looking through the result.

            • Use SUM as Log Server/Archive

              It would be very helpful if I could use a SUM Server as Remote Log File Archive. With this feature I could centralize all Logs of all my UMT's. A addon feature to search in e.g. Webfilter Logs of multiple UTM's at the same time would also be very nice!
              And if I do complex searches or log files are very big, the load will move away from productive UTM's.

              Thanks in advance,
              Pascal

                  Please add the ability to verify the remote archive log files server credentials (Test Button) so the admin may be certain that the archives will be written - prior to a warning email notice that the files could not be written on the target server.

                  • FTP SITE CHANGE

                    changing the way the FTP site works

                    Essentially as the .md file in the FTP directory is from the same FTP site, it doesn't mean or validate anything (e.g. cannot be relied upon to validate the trustworthiness of the file). Reason being if the site is spoofed (e.g. via DNS) then we cannot validate the identity of the remote server, given it is clear-text FTP (no mechanism to validate the site's identity, such as via SSL/TLS). Further, if the site has been compromised, an attacker merely has to place the MD5 hash there for the malicious ISO file they replaced.

                      • Logging/Reporting: support SAN/NAS storage

                        Add support for storage devices such as iSCSI, so that Astaro can write long term data such as logs, reporting, and quarantine data to storage off of the appliance. this would allow for better recovery in the event of hardware failure.

                        • Logging: Search within Search Engine Logs

                          Would it be possible to support searching with asterisk within the search engine logs? So when some people had searched for "i want a new job" or "better Jobs" I want a search within the log with "*jobs*" and I can see all those search terms from the users.

                          • Logging: Syslog Support of RFC 5424

                            Basically exactly as the title says. The logging to external syslog as it is now does not follow either RFC 3164 or RFC 5424.

                            Since the RFC 3164 was replaced by RFC 5424 it would be nice to have the option to select the format of syslog messages that are sent to external syslog server to follow this RFC standard. Right now if the external syslog is following the RFC standard and receives a syslog message from ASG which is NOT RFC compliant the message is malformed and not stored correctly which naturally causes a lot of problems.

                                • TLS (SSL) Encrypting remote syslog

                                  Hi please implement TLS (SSL) Encrypting for remote syslog.
                                  It is an important feature to send encrypted syslog messages to the remote syslog server: http://www.rsyslog.com/doc/rsyslog_tls.html
                                  A Cisco ASA, Synology NAS and Linux supports this feature. Please implement this also into your great UTM Firewall !!

                                    It would be nice to have the possibility to send notifications not only with email and snmp, but also via Feed RSS. In this case admin should set the interfaces/ip address authorized to access to this feeds. It is a non invasive way (such as mail) to notificate important events to admins.

                                    • Preset logging level (actual logging options / full log) for fast debug

                                      Imagine that you have 100 packetfilter rules not logged, 50 nat rules not logged, some im/p2p rules set as "Do not control". If you have troubles, perhaps it would be very usefull to easly and fastly switch from actual logging level to full logging level, without manually set (and then restore) every log option for each rule.

                                      This "Full log" option, should also:

                                      - log autopacket rules, that in this moment are not logged
                                      - overrides those exceptions (ie. in web security) that prevents some hosts to be logged.

                                      • Logging: Export Logs to CSV/Excel

                                        Allow exporting of HTTP content filter log to a csv/ms excel/ods file (especially after using the filter to search the HTTP content filter log)

                                        • Add Interface information to logs

                                          For troubleshooting purposes, including the interface that a packet/URL is going out would be very helpful.

                                          While viewing a live log I would just need the interface, eth0, eth1, br1, etc, added to the line so that I can be sure that my multipathi rules are working.

                                          For example:

                                          2010:05:12-07:17:47 proxy httpproxy[4561]: id="0001" severity="info" sys="SecureWeb" sub="http" name="http access" action="pass" method="GET" srcip="192.168.0.2" user="" request="0" url="http://somelink.com"; INTERFACE="eth1"
