Non existing fields

Added by Thomas Andrejak over 7 years ago

In my experience, with the current IDMEF description, I can not be able to put information about :
  • Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability and Vulnerability impact
  • Secret level of the information, like from non protected network (internet) or from VIP network (with secret data)

The comparison with several other formats has pointed out some new missing fields:
- Start and end time of the event. That could possibly be useful, but we have to remember that a lot of time fields are already available and that it tends to confuse users.
- The transport protocol also seems to be missing in the IDMEF schema, whereas CEF has a field for it.
- User privileges could be provided in the alert. CEF does it.
- We mentioned a few times the NAT addresses missing in the schema. It could be very easy to add a category field indicating whether the address is translated or not.
- IDMEF already has a field for PID, but there’s no field for TID (thread id).
