Teleport Log Monitoring

Integration Overview

Teleport is an open-source access platform used by DevSecOps teams for SSH, Kubernetes, databases, and internal web applications. Panther can collect, normalize, and monitor Teleport logs to help you identify suspicious activity in real time. Your normalized log data is then retained to power future security investigations in a data lake powered by the cloud-native data platform, Snowflake.

Use Cases for Teleport Audit Logs

Panther supports the ingestion of Gravitational.TeleportAudit logs, which record events like successful user logins along with metadata like remote IP addresses, timestamps, and session IDs. Some common security use cases for Teleport audit logs include:

  • Investigating high-volumes of failed logins
  • Monitoring commands and arguments executed on hosts
  • Analyzing network connections initiated by users or scheduled jobs
  • Detecting when network scans or suspicious commands are executed

Onboarding Teleport Logs in Panther

Panther supports ingesting Teleport logs via common Data Transport options: Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 and SQS. Setting Teleport up in Panther is fast and easy - simply create a new Teleport log source within the Panther console, choose your preferred data transport method, and configure Teleport to push logs to your chosen data transport source.

For more details on onboarding Teleport logs or for supported log schema, you can view our Teleport documentation here.

Parsing, Normalizing, & Analyzing

As Panther ingests Teleport logs, they are parsed, normalized, and stored in a Snowflake security data lake. This allows you to write detections, identify anomalies, and conduct investigations in the context of days, weeks, or months of data.

Panther applies normalization fields to log records, which standardizes names for attributes and enables you to correlate data across all of your log sources. Panther’s handy search tools - such as Query Builder, Data Explorer, and Indicator Search - allow you to investigate your normalized logs for suspicious activity or vulnerabilities. For more information on searching logs, check out our documentation on Investigations & Search.

Detection as Code

With Panther, you aren’t confined to rigid detections or proprietary code bases as seen in many SIEM solutions. Panther is built around detection-as-code principles, giving you the ability to write Python to define detection logic and to integrate external systems like version control and CI/CD pipelines into your detection engineering processes. This results in powerful, flexible, and reusable scripting of detections for your security team.

Pre-built detections for Teleport are available in Panther, offering you the ability to immediately monitor for common IoCs and threats. You can explore our built-in detection coverage for Teleport logs here.

Configuring Alerts

Panther generates alerts when your detection rules or policies for Teleport are triggered, and integrates with a variety of alert destinations to allow for intuitive management of any alerts. Alerts can also be sent to alert context or SOAR platforms for more remediation options.

Alerts are grouped into five different severity levels: Info, Low, Medium, High, and Critical. Your security team has the ability to dynamically assign severity based on specific log event attributes.

Customer Support

If you have any questions about onboarding or monitoring Teleport logs in Panther, our customer support team is here to help. All customers have access to support via a dedicated Slack channel, email, or in-app messenger.

You can view our documentation on configuring and monitoring Teleport logs here, or customers can sign up for the Panther Community to share best practices or custom detections for Teleport logs.

The Ideal SIEM for Teleport

With Panther, your team doesn’t have to pay excessive costs to keep up with the growth of cloud app data, waste time and resources on operational overhead, or struggle with restrictive detection logic. Panther was founded by a team of security engineers who struggled with other SIEM solutions first-hand, and built an intuitive, cloud-native platform to meet today’s security needs.

Panther is a cloud-native SIEM built for security operations at scale, offering flexible detection-as-code, intuitive security workflows, and actionable real-time alerts. For a powerful, practical, and scalable SIEM solution for Teleport, request a demo today.
