Replaying audit trails in your browser

The following section describes how to replay an audit trail in your browser.

NOTE: You can replay audit trails in your browser, or using the Safeguard Desktop Player application. Note that there are differences between these solutions.

For details on the Safeguard Desktop Player application, see Safeguard Desktop Player User Guide.

The following table details the differences between the solutions provided by the browser and the Safeguard Desktop Player application when replaying audit trails.

Caution:

From SPS version 6.10, you do not need to install the Google WebM Video for Microsoft Internet Explorer plugin to replay audit trails in your browser. The supported browsers are Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and IE11.

For SPS version 6.9 and earlier versions, even though the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) web interface supports Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge in general, to replay audit trails, you need to use Internet Explorer 11, and install the Google WebM Video for Microsoft Internet Explorer plugin. If you cannot install Internet Explorer 11 or another supported browser on your computer, use the the Safeguard Desktop Player application. For details, see "Replaying audit trails in your browser" in the Administration Guide and Safeguard Desktop Player User Guide.

NOTE: From SPS version 6.10 and onwards, you can play video files of audit trails both in central and in cluster environments. Previously, you could play the video files only on the Search Master node in a cluster environment. From SPS version 6.10 and onwards, you can play video files on Search Minion nodes as well.

To replay an audit trail in your browser

  1. On the Search page, select the audit trail you want to replay.

  2. To display the details of a connection, click . This page is called the details view.

  3. To play the video file, click .

  4. (Optional) For encrypted audit trails, upload any missing private keys and certificates. For more information on these procedures, see section Replaying encrypted audit trails in your browser.

    After uploading the private keys and the corresponding certificates, the encrypted upstream traffic elements are decrypted. The trail is decrypted and decompressed on the client-side. As a result, the encrypted elements will be displayed distributed in the video (see List of keyboard events, Show / hide events, and both versions of the Progress bar further in this section, in Replaying audit trails in your browser).

  5. (Optional) After uploading any missing private keys or certificates, to play the video, click .

    1. (Optional) If there are more channels that can be played, select the channel that you want to play in the Multiple channels are available dialog and click Play video.

      Figure 302: Multiple channels are available dialog

      The Player window opens.

For more information on how to use the browser to play video files, see Using the browser to play video files.

Using the browser to play video files

This section provides information on how to use the browser to play video files.

TIP: You can quickly zoom in or out by clicking anywhere in the Player window.

NOTE: From the video, you can copy the content of text-based protocols to the clipboard:

  1. Select the required content.

  2. Right click on the selected content.

  3. From the list of available options, select Copy.

The Player window has the following controls:

  • , : Play, Pause

  • ,: Jump to previous event, Jump to next event

  • : Adjust replay speed. The possible increments are: 0,25, 0,5, 1, 1,5, 2, 3, and 5.

  • : Time since the audit trail started / Length of the audit trail. Click on the time to show the date (timestamp) of the audit trail.

  • : List of keyboard events. Special characters like SHIFT, ENTER, F1, and so on, and mouse usage are displayed as buttons. If the upstream traffic is encrypted, upload your permanent or temporary keys to User menu > Audit keystore to display the keyboard events. This will not be displayed if your upstream traffic is encrypted but not unlocked.

  • : Create a screenshot

  • : Show / hide events. Select the types of events to display. The available options are Keystroke, Mouse activity, and On-screen changes. Depending on the protocol used and how the audit trail was processed, SPS can display keyboard events, commands, mouse events, and window titles. Commands and window titles are displayed as subtitles at the bottom of the screen. This will not be displayed if your upstream traffic is encrypted but not unlocked.

  • , : Switching fullscreen mode on and off

  • : Progress bar and distribution of events. Light blue - screen change, blue - keyboard or mouse event, dark blue - command or title event. This will not be displayed if your upstream traffic is encrypted but not unlocked.

  • : Close the player, and return to the Connection details page.

Viewing encrypted screenshots

This section provides information on how to view encrypted screenshots and on the private keys that are necessary to view them.

Prerequisites

To view encrypted screenshots in the Search interface, you have to upload the necessary private encryption keys to your audit keystore. Only RSA keys (in PEM-encoded X.509 certificates) can be uploaded to the audit keystore.

One Identity recommends using 2048-bit RSA keys (or stronger).

The private keys are stored locally, in your browser.

NOTE: If you clear your browser’s data, your audit keystore could be deleted. If your audit keystore is deleted, upload your private keys again.

To view encrypted screenshots

  1. On the Search page, select an encrypted audit trail.

  2. To display the details of a connection, click . This page is called the details view.

  3. To access the list of encrypted screenshots of the selected audit trail, click Events in the details view.

  4. Click the screenshot that you want to view.

  5. (Optional) Unlock your keystore.

    If you have private keys stored in your audit keystore, the Unlock keystore dialog is displayed.

    Figure 304: Unlock keystore — Enter your master password

    Enter your master password and click Unlock keystore.

    The keystore is unlocked and you can use your keys or you can add new keys.

  6. (Optional) If there is a missing private key, the Private keys missing dialog opens.

    Figure 305: Private keys missing dialog

    Click Upload private keys, which takes you to User menu > Audit keystore, where you can add the keys.

  7. (Optional) If necessary, add any missing certificates on Basic settings > Local services > Indexer service.

    Previously, the audit keystore was used to store certificates as well as private keys. From SPS version 6.10 and onwards, you must upload the certificates to Basic settings > Local services > Indexer service.

    For more information on how to add certificates, see Configuring the internal indexer.

Result

Once you add the necessary private keys to your audit keystore, you can view the encrypted screenshots in the Search interface.

Replaying encrypted audit trails in your browser

This section provides information on the necessary private keys and certificates for playing encrypted audit trails in your browser and on how to open a video file of an audit trail.

Prerequisites

To replay encrypted audit trails in your browser, you have to upload the necessary private keys to your audit keystore and the corresponding certificates to Basic settings > Local services > Indexer service. Depending on the encryption, decrypting the upstream part of an audit trail may require an additional set of certificates and keys.

Only RSA keys (in PEM-encoded X.509 certificates) can be uploaded to the private keystore.

One Identity recommends using 2048-bit RSA keys (or stronger).

NOTE: Certificates are used as a container and delivery mechanism. For encryption and decryption, only the keys are used.

Use every keypair or certificate only for one purpose. Do not reuse cryptographic keys or certificates (for example, do not use the certificate of the One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) webserver to encrypt audit trails, or the same keypair for signing and encrypting data).

For more information on audit trail encryption, see Encrypting audit trails and for more information about replaying audit trails in your browser, see Replaying audit trails in your browser.

You can upload certificates permanently or temporarily. The temporary certificates are deleted when you log out of SPS.
