This category contains integration scenarios that use IBM Data Security products.
System Integrations Courses:
This learning module demonstrates the integration of IBM Guardium and IBM IGI products to support the GDPR compliance initiative on structure data. The solution provides a custom developed AssemblyLine that runs in IBM Directory Integrator (IDI), and an IBM Identity Governance and Intelligence (IGI) Custom Adapter that requires IBM Directory Server and IDI to run.
The integration goal is to identify GDPR sensitive data using a provided sample database using IBM Guardium. Guardium then exports a report that contains users who have access to tables with GDPR relevant data. Then, the IGI Custom Adapter imports these reports into IGI for further compliance and access management.
The course provides a lab environment where the integration can be tested and demonstrated.
Also, if you do not have time to run the lab, you can review the videos that demonstrate all steps in the lab.The additional learning section provides a custom AssemblyLine and a custom IGI adapter as-is with no IBM support. You can provide feedback to the Security Learning Academy if you have any issues with the code.
This self-paced learning content represents an integration scenario that uses IBM Privileged Identify Manager (PIM), IBM Guardium, IBM Network Protection (XGS), IBM QRadar, and IBM Directory Integrator (IDI). The course includes three videos that depict a database administrator interacting with the system. Watch the videos in the following order:
1) Testing Initial PIM and Guardium Setup – This video shows the basic functionality of PIM and Guardium without implementing integration between them.
2) Testing PIM and Guardium Integration – This video shows the benefits of integrating PIM and Guardium. There is no direct integration path between the two products. QRadar and IDI are used to bridge integration gaps between PIM and Guardium.
3) Testing a Complete Integration Solution– This video shows a fully integrated security solution. It includes the XGS appliance that terminates any existing connection from the database administrator workstation to the database server.
This course also includes an Integration Guide that documents the configuration steps necessary to integrate the products. It also includes the IDI.zip file that contains the custom files, including developed IDI assembly lines, necessary to successfully implement this integration scenario.
This lab demonstrates bidirectional integration of IBM® QRadar® SIEM and IBM® Guardium®. QRadar SIEM collects the logs from various devices in enterprise networks. The logs are received through connectors called Device Support Module (DSM). QRadar has a DSM for Guardium. That DSM enables QRadar to receive and process logs from Guardium.
Alternatively, Guardium has an API that provides an option for QRadar to react to certain events detected by QRadar, and send Guardium those commands to adjust the database policy to properly react to the event. For example, if QRadar detects that the source IP from an internal network is communicating with an IP address classified as the Botnet Server, it can send a command to Guardium to block any access to the database from the same IP address. The call from QRadar to Guardium can be done using the Custom Actions feature of QRadar or using IBM Security Directory Integrator® (IDI) that acts as the proxy; transforming various events from QRadar into Guardium API calls.
This IDI solution uses custom
developed code that IBM provides as-is without any support and
maintenance commitments. You can download the code from the Security
Learning Academy in the Additional Resources section of this course.
The IBM Security Immune System looks at a security portfolio in an organized fashion - as an integrated framework of security capabilities that transmits and ingests vital security data to help gain visibility, understand, and prioritize threats, and coordinate multiple layers of defense. At its core, the system automates policies and block threats - just as the human immune system can assess and identify a virus and then trigger an immune response.
