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, see Encrypting audit trails and Replaying audit trails in your browser.

NOTE: You can only upload certificates permanently. Uploading certificates temporarily is not supported anymore.

To replay encrypted audit trails 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.

    NOTE: If you select the Automatic refresh option in User menu > Preferences, all the details of the sessions are refreshed automatically in the details view. For more information on the Automatic refresh option, see Preferences.

  3. To play the video file, click .

  4. (Optional) Unlock your keystore.

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

    Figure 308: 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.

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

    Figure 309: Private keys missing dialog

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

  6. (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.

    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 (for more information, see Player window controls in Replaying audit trails in your browser).

  7. (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 310: Multiple channels are available dialog

      The Player window opens.

  8. (Optional) To download the video file, click .

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

Following active sessions

If a session is not closed but it is still active, the label is displayed in the session details window and you can follow or terminate active sessions.

  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.

    NOTE: If you select the Automatic refresh option in User menu > Preferences, all the details of the sessions are refreshed automatically in the details view. For more information on the Automatic refresh option, see Preferences.

  3. Click .

  4. Select where you want to follow the active session.

    1. To follow the session in the browser, select Follow in browser.

    2. To follow the session on Safeguard Desktop Player, select Follow in Safegurad Desktop Player.

      The trail data is exported in .srs format, which you can download and open with Safeguard Desktop Player.

      For more information on the Safeguard Desktop Player, see Safeguard Desktop Player User Guide.

  5. (Optional) To terminate the active session, click .

    This button is displayed only if you have the rights to perform this operation.

Creating report subchapters

Topics:

Creating search-based report subchapters from search results

NOTE: Creating report subchapters from search queries is currently an experimental feature of One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS), therefore One Identity recommends that only administrators use this feature and only at their own risk.

You can turn any search query or statistics into a subchapter to add to your reports. This is an easy and flexible way of creating reports to monitor traffic, track certain parameters, or get alerted about particular events.

To create a search-based report subchapter from search results

  1. Navigate to Search, and perform a query of your choice.

  2. Click Search. Search results are displayed.

  3. Click Create report. The Create new subchapter page is displayed, with the Query field populated with your query. If the Query field is not populated, enter a valid search query.

    Figure 311: Search > Create report - Example subchapter created from search results with Query field populated

  4. In the Name field, add a name to your report.

  5. In Subchapter type, select the type that fits your query. You can choose from the following types:
    • Sessions list: Displays a list of sessions.

      Set the number of sessions to show in the report as required.

    • Timeline: Visualizes the distribution of sessions within a day/week/month, depending on the time range chosen for the report under Reporting > Configuration > Generate this report every > Day/Week/Month.
    • Statistics: Visualizes the distribution of sessions based on the selected metadata.

      Select a Statistic presentation for your report, such as List, Pie chart, or Bar chart. Select the field (the metadata) to create your statistics on.

  6. To add the subchapter to an existing report, click Add to a report and select from the list of available reports.

    Alternatively, to configure a custom report from scratch, click Include in a new report. For more information, see Configuring custom reports.
