Hi Mike,

We will be using the "limit" function to reduce the number of logs.

It's not a bad idea to have IPTables do some heavy-duty logging as
long as you have the resources for it.  Your logs are going to grow
really, really, really fast if you log all drop and all accept.
You'll definitely want to log IPTables to a different file as well.

Think carefully how you're going to integrate your IPTables log into
the rest of your logs.  Do you have an IDS already setup to catch and
alert stuff?  Do you have a central syslog server?  Did you configure
other logging facilities properly (ssh, apache, etc)?

Hi,

We are implementing IP Tables on the servers as Host Based Firewall
and these have be integrated into the SIEM. What are the best
practices for integrating IPTables into a SIEM solution.

Questions are :
1 - Should we be logging both incoming and outgoing?
2 - Should we be logging dropped packets?
3 - Assume we log it, whats the situation with regards to limiting the
log rate? I
Cheers
