Nybble Security Analytics: Onboard a Fortinet device

Before you begin

Onboarding a fortigate device requires a filebeat collector somewhere in your network.
See Nybble Security Analytics: Filebeat collector for further details.

Grab the DNS name of the nearest filebeat collector you've installed in your network.

Fortigate onboarding

To configure the collection on filebeat:

  1. Locate the fortinet section in filebeat.yml to turn on the firewall collection:
    - module: fortinet
        enabled: false # turn it to true
    Log collection will use syslog, on port 1801, UDP.
  2. Restart the filebeat agent.
  3. Refer to Fortinet CLI Documentation for device configuration.
    The syslog format choosen should be Default.
