Dome9 SNS Events Integration - How to

In this topic:

    In this ‘how-to’ article explain step by step how to connect your Dome9 events feed into an AWS SNS (Simple Notification Service) topic under your control.

    An intro post can be found here.

    In order to follow this tutorial you’ll need to have access to both AWS and Dome9 consoles.

    Let's start.

    1. Log into your Dome9 Console and go to the account settings page (top right). Click 'Enable'

    2. Now, Log into any AWS account under your control (does not need to be connected to Dome9) and open the Simple Notification Service (SNS) console.

    3. On the SNS Dashboard, Create topic with a unique name and a short descriptive name, Click on Create topic.

    4. Under "Other topic actions", Click on Edit topic policy.

    5. Allow Dome9 to publish events into this topic by allowing this AWS user: 634729597623. Click ‘Update Policy

    6. Copy your topic ARN

    7. Paste the ARN into Dome9 popup and save. Dome9 system will validate it can push notifications into the topic.

    8. That’s it - you should see a success message and your integration marked as ‘enabled’


    In this example there is a failed logon from a user

      "Type" : "Notification",
      "MessageId" : "6a8f019c-f0de-5c4e-a575-
      "TopicArn" : "The Topic ARN defined",
      "Subject" : "Failed logon",
      "Message" : "EventType=UserLogOnFailureEvent, FriendlyType=Failed logon, Timestamp=2017-06-29T18:48:17Z, UserId=50462,, IPAddr=",
      "Timestamp" : "2017-06-29T18:48:18.101Z",
      "SignatureVersion" : "1",
      "Signature" : "c/F4hZt0rUYXzeblsuSgYVq8rxTSTF+lmdfVtylCWmHbM8sZE2y0L75Vd7OQ6gMEQ+hYzJ5QQ+kb7U/G/xRw8tK2euxM5XxvO6v7nOqnkl4ecv/CeGf39j2M/6llMEjAiGAbeU8XsY44Nhsyg+TL+LhEGPC/nvcb4IwYpDVv8JnfUfgjRTTuxcE+QFMIpd9LjIKoRFCCjBmGj3m/dGy12T86VViLWO+wzYH92JdEQDuTdiO4DewGQ7U0o5l9NBmL4JUIAzLGAI6wc8CCIy2cyvumXNE0+Iq05x4NCKr8qAtLHtnQ5BkcseWBeqzM3yqQ9YOmlVVDQ+xTPJRs5QJ+Bg==",
