Fortinet FortiSIEM

About the connector

Fortinet FortiSIEM is a highly scalable multi-tenant Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution that provides real-time infrastructure and user awareness for accurate threat detection, analysis and reporting.

This document provides information about the Fortinet FortiSIEM Connector, which facilitates automated interactions, with your Fortinet FortiSIEM server using FortiSOAR™ playbooks. Add the Fortinet FortiSIEM Connector, as a step in FortiSOAR™ playbooks and perform automated operations such as retrieving device information for all devices configured on the Fortinet FortiSIEM server and retrieving a list of monitored organizations from the Fortinet FortiSIEM server.

About the FortiSIEM app

If you want bidirectional integration between FortiSIEM and FortiSOAR™, then you can use the FortiSIEM app. The FortiSIEM app pushes incidents generated in FortiSIEM to an external FortiSOAR™ system as Alerts, and when these alerts are closed then the corresponding incidents are automatically cleared in FortiSIEM. To get the FortiSIEM app and the procedure on how to install and configure it, see the FortiSOAR™ - FortiSIEM application section.

Included playbooks

The Sample - Fortinet FortiSIEM - 2.0.0 playbook collection comes bundled with the Fortinet FortiSIEM connector. This playbook contains steps using which you can perform all supported actions. You can see the bundled playbooks in the Automation > Playbooks section in FortiSOAR™ after importing the Fortinet FortiSIEM connector.

  • Clear Incident With Reason
  • Comment Incident
  • Get All Devices
  • Get All Devices For Specified IP Address Range
  • Get Device Information
  • List Incidents
  • List Monitored Devices and Attributes
  • List Monitored Organizations

Note: If you are planning to use any of the sample playbooks in your environment, ensure that you clone those playbooks and move them to a different collection since the sample playbook collection gets deleted during the connector upgrade and delete.

FortiSOAR™ - FortiSIEM Application

The FortiSIEM app allows the bidirectional integration with the FortiSOAR™ UI. You can use the FortiSIEM app, to push incidents generated in FortiSIEM to an external FortiSOAR™ system as Alerts, and when these alerts are closed in FortiSOAR™ then the corresponding incidents are automatically cleared in FortiSIEM.

Version Information:

Applies to: FortiSIEM version 5.1 and above.

Prerequisites:

  • Ensure that the field Source Data in the Alerts module is named as sourcedata as shown in the following image:
    This field is required to be set as above so that the incident data from FortiSIEM can be added to this field in the JSON format.
  • Ensure that the field Closed By in the Alerts module is named as closedby, the Field Type is set as Lookup (One to Many or One to One), and its related module is set as People, as shown in the following image:
    Ensure that the Closed By field is set as above and is populated while closing the alert since the details of the user who closes the alert can be synched back into the External User field in the FortiSIEM incident.

FortiSIEM App: Installation and Configuration

Installing the FortiSIEM App

  1. Download and copy the install-fortisiem-app.sh script that has been attached to this article and save it to an appropriate location on your FortiSIEM system.
    Important: After you have downloaded the install-fortisiem-app.sh script, verify the MD5 of the install-fortisiem-app.sh script file. The MD5 of this file must be: b916ad06400497fb5fd35e088f5cc1e9
  2. SSH to your FortiSIEM system as a root user.

Configuring Outbound integrations:

  1. Login to your FortiSIEM system.
  2. Click the Analytics tab and then select the Incident Notification Policy option from the left navigation.
  3. On the Incident Notification Policy screen, click New, which will display a form as shown in the following image:
  4. In the Notification Policy form select the Invoke an integration policy checkbox, and select the Outbound integration policy that you have created.
  5. Select all other parameters based on your requirements and click on Save.
    This configures your outbound integration.

Configuring Inbound integrations:

  1. Login to your FortiSIEM system.

  1. To disable the outbound flow of incidents from FortiSIEM, do the following:
    1. Login to your FortiSIEM system.
    2. Click the Analytics tab and then select the Incident Notification Policy option from the left navigation.
    3. Select the configured policy and click Edit, which will display the policy screen.
    4. On the policy screen, clear the Enable checkbox and click Save to disable your outbound integration.
  2. To disable the inbound synchronization of incidents between FortiSOAR™ and FortiSIEM, do the following:
    1. Login to your FortiSIEM system.
    2. Click the Admin tab and then select the General Setting option from the left navigation and click the Integrations > Schedule, which will display the Integrations Policy Schedules screen.
    3. Select the policy that you want to remove from the Integration Policy column and click Delete to disable your inbound scheduler.

FortiSIEM App: Known Issues

  • If you clear an incident in FortiSIEM the same is not reflected in FortiSOAR™. This is because currently the FortiSIEM app only synchronizes open tickets from FortiSIEM
