"Alert when decrypted" behaviour

Added by Fredrik Eriksson over 6 years ago


According to the "Alert when decrypted" flag will send some sort of message to the remote syslog-server about the password being decrypted. However, as far as I can tell the syslog server receives the same message regardless if the alert-flag is set or not.

When decrypting two items I get the following entries in the internal StoredSafe audit log:

2018-04-12 12:26:31     <user> (40)     <vault>(9)     <entry1> (1846)         <remote>     DECRYPTED
2018-04-12 12:26:30     <user> (40)     <vault>(9)     <entry2> (1815)         <remote>     ALARM DECRYPTED

But on the external syslog server we receive these lines:

storedsafe[12651]: action="decrypted" what="<entry1> (1846)" user="<user> (40)" source="<remote>" 
storedsafe[12588]: action="decrypted" what="<entry2> (1815)" user="<user> (40)" source="<remote>" 

It seems to me that syslog does not receive enough information to create an alert on sensitive password decryptions. Or perhaps I'm misunderstanding the feature?

Sorry for the late reply,
I've created an internal ticket for it and we will look into it.

I hope you know you can create tickets also if you find stuff, that way we get a notification and can hopefully act more rapidly
