IPS Log with attacked destination URL

Hello,

 

I was wondering if perhaps someone has a good solution to my question, since we did not find a smooth way to do it.

As the Fortigate firewalls have a viable IPS signature database we are using the feature for several purposes with different profiles. Vertainly, we also use profiles for protecting http webserver. Thus, I have following question for the community.

 

Is there a practical way to log the destination URL of attacks?

 

So far we did not find any way to get this logged like for AV or App-ctrl. Does anyone know if this is even possible for ips?

 

Looking forward to a constructive discussion.

Kind regards,

Daniel

I think with the IPS you can do packet captures, which I believe would include the URL?

Hello Tom,

 

that is true and we already thought of that. But it will not help if you want to use the information for statistical information. Besides, the amount of data stored would be too high if you are just interested in the URLs.

 

Greetings,

Daniel
