Security Onion - Winlogbeat and Sysmon setup

03 Juni 2020 

This is a release on how to implemenet Winlogbeat and Sysmon into Security Onion.
Why This ? ....I could not find any good information on how to get all these parts to work, with the Sysmon and Winlogbeat for logcollection from Windows hosts to Security Onion.

It is free for anyone, and you will get pretty good monitoring of your Windows hosts. And because it is build on top of the Security Onion framework, it will give you a very strong way to monitor your network traffic, Windows Servers and Windows clients logs.

As a free open source framework, this is proberly some of the best tool sets you will find out there, to give visability on what is happening in your enviorement. The logcollection is based on NSA best pratice for Windows event log colection and the MITRE Attacks framework.

MITRE attack framework
Right now it is covering 82 MITRE attacks, and this is without counting any MITRE numbers in, on what is coverd by Security Onion alone.

You will get 54 dashboards with a total of 422 objects to look at. Happy hunting.....
