Log Correlation Engine Client Policies

The LCE Client Policies page contains a list of all the client policies currently available to be used by LCE clients. The list contains the name of the policy, the OS it is configured for use on, and the type of client the policy can be applied to.

Example policy files are available for use with the names default and beginning with “TNS-”. These policy files may be used as is or exported to be used as a basis for custom policy files. The example files may be updated and changed at a later time without notice, so using them as is may return different results at a later date.

The “Add” button allows customized LCE Client policy files to be added to the LCE server and made available for use. The name field is appended to the beginning of the file name and is used to offer a description of the function or use of the policy file. The OS Type is used in the file name to easily identify the OS for which the policy is designed. The Client Type indicates the LCE Client for which the policy is written. The Source field is used to select and upload the custom policy file or enter the policy file into the text field. Clicking the Submit button saves the policy file and sends it to the LCE server.

Note: The “default” and “TNS” prefixes are only designed to be used by policies supplied by Tenable. Using “default” or “TNS” as a prefix for custom policy files may lead to them being overwritten or manipulated in undesired ways.

Selecting a policy and clicking the “Export” option from the gear menu will allow the policy to be saved to a local drive. The format of the file is XML and may be edited with standard text or XML editors.

Selecting a policy and clicking the “View” option from the gear menu displays the policy name and source of the policy in a window within SecurityCenter. The information cannot be edited from within this window.

Note: For more information on creating LCE Client Policy files, please see the LCE Client Guide available on the Tenable Support Portal.
