Secoway eLog System
As organizations strengthen informatization construction, their
application systems (service systems, operating systems, databases,
and Web servers), security devices (firewalls and the UTM, IPS, IDS,
VPN, DPI, and AV devices), and network devices (routers, switches,
and access devices) expand continuously. It is urgent to set up a
comprehensive and unified log management system for managing all
logs covering the network layer, system layer, and application layer.
and Web servers, such as backdoor Trojan horses, SQL injections,
Web tampering, and internal data tampering. How to detect and
tackle the security incidents? How to investigate the incidents and
collect evidence?
To help organizations address these concerns, Huawei Technologies
Co., Ltd. (Huawei for short) launches a comprehensive log
management and security audit system, namely, Secoway eLog.
Security incidents appear one after another on hosts, databases,

Session Log Management
■■ The eLog system collects, parses, and stores session logs (NAT
logs) generated by firewalls, routers, and switches.
■■ It accurately traces the NAT process to provide evidence for
Behavior “Exposure”
Network Behavior Audit and Management
■■ The Secoway eLog system collects live statistics and displays
reports on various traffic such as basic traffic, application-specific
traffic, interface-specific traffic, and P2P traffic.
■■ The Secoway eLog system provides reports also on UTM features such
as IPS, mail filtering, AV, URL filtering, and IM monitoring and blocking.
■■ The Secoway eLog system analyzes the bypass probe device
on application-layer protocols such as FTP, Telnet, and HTTP.
According to analysis results, the Secoway eLog system monitors
high-risk operations and alerts administrators to take immediate
actions against suspicious behaviors.
■■ The Secoway eLog system audits operations for the DB2, Oracle,
Informix, Sybase, and SQL server databases to provide visibility
into current database operations and ensure data security.
User Behavior Audit and Management
Centralized Management
Unified Log Management Platform
■■ The Secoway eLog system logs the following devices:
•• Huawei’s security devices, routers, switches, and BRAS devices.
•• Other vendors’ security and network devices.
•• Hosts, databases, and Web servers.
•• Standard syslog devices.
■■ The Secoway eLog system collects, categorizes, and stores all logs
in a reliable and large-capacity disk array.

Intelligent Security
User-centric Alarm Management
■■ The administrator can configure alarm policies if desired. The
Secoway eLog system automatically informs the administrator in
different ways when an event matches alarm policies.
■■ The administrator can learn live alarm statistics on the entire
network or a specific device to gain visibility into the network
security posture.
Flexible Network Deployment
■■ Its distributed architecture allows the Secoway eLog system to
smoothly upgraded from the centralized mode to the distributed
mode without affecting the current network structure.
High Security and Reliability
■■ The Secoway eLog system has the following reliability features:
•• Supports HTTPS access to ensure data security.
•• Uses the buffer mechanism to avoid data loss in the case of
network failures.
•• Provides highly reliable storage and management of massive
logs, covering log compression, log backup to tape drives, and
quick disaster recovery.

Secoway eLog
•• Due to limited IP, for most enterprises, the gateway is used to perform NAT or PAT.
•• Security events often occur on the internal or external network through the gateway. Thus, evidence can be colleted by recording NAT
or PAT information.

•• The Eudemon logs the virus and attack events and attempts to visit prohibited Web sites or use prohibited applications such as P2P. The
elog system can collect the loge, alert the administrators, and provide reports.
•• The bypass probe device can analyze the mirrored traffic and log the operations made to databases, operating systems, or other
resources through FTP, Telnet, and HTTP. The elog system collects the logs and can intuitively display the statistics.

•• Through customization-based development, the logs of all devices, databases, servers, and hosts are analyzed and managed for data
•• Logs are audited based on the preset security policies and alarm policies.
•• Law compliance requirements such as Ministry of Public Security Decree No. 82 and SOX are met.

Product Specifications
Log collection
The Secoway eLog system can collect logs in a complex network environment such as dual-system
hot backup of the Eudemon firewalls.
It collects the logs of various devices in syslog, SNMP trap, OPSEC, FTP/SFTP, WMI, and JDBC modes
without using any agents.
Log categorization and
The Secoway eLog system:
•• Categorizes logs by content. Logs can also be divided into online logs, dump logs, and backup
logs by storage time.
•• Encrypts and performs integrity check on log files.
Log search
The Secoway eLog system:
•• Provides device-specific search conditions and displays the results.
•• Supports background search. Search conditions can be saved in a template for future use.
•• Exports search results into .txt, .cvs, or .xls files to facilitate distribution and offline viewing.
Policy association
The Secoway eLog system supports user-defined audit policies and alarm methods.
