Alcide

Overview

Alcide provides Kubernetes audit and anomaly monitoring services. This integration allows Datadog to ingest and process logs from Alcide.

Setup

Installation

Datadog automatically enables a logs processing pipeline when Alcide logs are detected. No installation steps are required.

Configuration

In Alcide, select the Integrations tab and go to the Detections Integrations Configuration section, which is used to configure integrations for threat intel logs.

  1. Select HTTP API as your target.

  2. In the URL box, enter https://http-intake.logs.<DATADOG_SITE>/v1/input/<DATADOG_API_KEY>?ddsource=alcide. Replace the placeholder value <DATADOG_SITE> with datadoghq.com for the US site, or with datadoghq.eu for the EU site. Replace the placeholder value <DATADOG_API_KEY> with your Datadog API key.

  3. Under Entities Types, select the types that you want to forward threat intel about. Datadog recommends selecting all of these.

  4. Under Detection Categories, select the categories you wish to forward. Datadog recommends selecting both incidents and anomalies.

  5. Under Detection Confidence, select your desired levels of confidence. Datadog recommends selecting at least high and medium.

  6. Optionally, you can create whitelist and blacklist filters on entities using the Entities Matching and Entities Not Matching boxes.

Then, go to the Selected Audit Entries Integration Configuration section, located underneath the previous section. This section is used to configure integrations for audit logs.

  1. Select HTTP API as your target.

  2. In the URL box, enter https://http-intake.logs.<DATADOG_SITE>/v1/input/<DATADOG_API_KEY>?ddsource=alcide. Replace the placeholder value <DATADOG_SITE> with datadoghq.com for the US site, or with datadoghq.eu for the EU site. Replace the placeholder value <DATADOG_API_KEY> with your Datadog API key.
