FortiGate Cloud logging in the Security Fabric 7.0.4

A Security Fabric can be created on the root device using FortiGate Cloud for cloud logging. When the FortiCloud account enforcement is enabled (by default), members joining the Fabric must be registered to the same FortiCloud account. Devices that are not activated with FortiCloud are also allowed.

A new FortiGate Cloud Event Handler automation trigger is available. The Compromised Host trigger can be used for IOC events detected in FortiGate Cloud. Both triggers require a FortiGate Cloud log retention license.

Configuring a Security Fabric with FortiGate Cloud logging

In this topology, the FGT-F-VM has the same FortiCloud account ID as the root FortiGate (FGT_10_101F), so it can join the Fabric. The FGT-D has a different FortiCloud account ID, so its authorization request to join the Fabric is rejected. The FGT-A is not activated with FortiCloud, but it can still join the Fabric. Its Cloud Logging setting shows that it requires authorization.

This topology is used in the following four Security Fabric configuration examples.

Devices with the same FortiCloud account ID

In this example, the root FortiGate (FGT_10_101F) is configured with FortiGate Cloud logging. In the Security Fabric settings, the FortiCloud account enforcement option is enabled by default. The downstream FortiGate, FGT-F-VM, with the same FortiCloud account ID is able to join the Fabric.

To configure a Security Fabric with FortiCloud logging in the GUI:
  1. On the root FortiGate, configure FortiCloud logging:
    1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Cloud Logging card.
    2. Set the Type to FortiGate Cloud.
    3. Set the Upload option to Real Time.

    4. Click OK.
  2. Configure the Security Fabric settings (see Configuring the root FortiGate and downstream FortiGates in the FortiOS Administration Guide). The FortiCloud account enforcement setting is enabled by default.

  3. On the FGT-F-VM, check the FortiCloud logging settings:
    1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Cloud Logging card. The settings are automatically retrieved from the root and the Account is the same.

  4. Configure the FGT-F-VM to join the Security Fabric:
    1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card.
    2. Set the Security Fabric role to Join Existing Fabric.
    3. Click OK. The FortiGate is authorized and successfully joins the Security Fabric.

To configure a Security Fabric with FortiCloud logging in the CLI:
config log fortiguard setting
    set status enable
    set upload-option realtime
end

The FortiCloud account enforcement setting is enabled by default in the Security Fabric settings:

show system csf
    config system csf
        set status enable
        set group-name "CSF_101"
        set forticloud-account-enforcement enable
    end

Device with a different FortiCloud account ID

In this example, the downstream FortiGate, FGT-D, has a different FortiCloud account ID than the Fabric root FortiGate (FGT_10_101F), so this FortiGate will not be authorized to join the Fabric.

To configure the FGT-D to join the Security Fabric:
  1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card.
  2. Set the Security Fabric role to Join Existing Fabric. A warning appears that the downstream FortiGates must have the same FortiGate Cloud account and subscription. The device's authorization to join the Fabric is rejected.

  3. Click Cancel.

Device without an activated FortiCloud account ID

In this example, the downstream FortiGate, FGT-A, does not have an activated FortiCloud account ID. This FortiGate is still authorized to join the Fabric, but the FortiCloud account needs to be activated.

To configure the FGT-A to join the Security Fabric:
  1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card.
  2. Set the Security Fabric role to Join Existing Fabric. A warning appears that the downstream FortiGates must have the same FortiGate Cloud account and subscription. The device is authorized to join the Fabric.

  3. Click OK.
  4. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Cloud Logging card.
  5. Beside Account, click Activate and complete the prompts to activate the account.

Device with a different FortiCloud account ID with FortiCloud account enforcement disabled

In this example, FortiCloud account enforcement is disabled on the root FortiGate (FGT_10_101F). The downstream FortiGate, FGT-D, has a different FortiCloud account ID than the Fabric root, but it will be authorized to join the Fabric.

To configure a Security Fabric with FortiCloud account enforcement disabled:
  1. Disable FortiCloud account enforcement on the Fabric root (FGT_10_101F):
    1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card.
    2. Disable FortiCloud account enforcement.
    3. Click OK.
  2. Configure the FGT-D to join the Security Fabric:
    1. Go to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card.
    2. Set the Security Fabric role to Join Existing Fabric. The device is authorized to join the Fabric.

    3. Click OK.
    4. On the Fabric root, go back to Security Fabric > Fabric Connectors and double-click the Security Fabric Setup card. The authorized FGT-D appears in the Topology.

Security rating

When FortiCloud logging is used in a Security Fabric, the Security Posture scorecard no longer has security control results for FortiAnalyzer.

In the Fabric Coverage scorecard, there is a security control test for multiple FortiCare accounts.

Configuring an automation stitch with the FortiGate Cloud event handler trigger

In this example, an automation stitch uses the FortiGate Cloud Event Handler trigger. When an event is triggered, the FortiGate sends an email alert to the administrator.
