Configure NFO AWS VPC Flow Logs Modules and EDFN Agent

There are two NFO Modules reporting AWS VPC Flow Logs ingested from S3, Kinesis or CloudWatch:

  • AWS VPC Flow Logs - reports VPC Flow Logs, translating them one-to-one in syslog or JSON formats, and enriching them with AWS data not reported in VPC Flow Logs natively
  • AWS Top Traffic Monitor – reports hosts with the most traffic. It consolidates VPC Flow Logs records over a period of time (the Data Collection Interval you choose) which all have the same combination of the following fields: Source IP, Destination IP, Source port, Destination port, and Layer 3 protocol. This information is provided per VPC ID. The Module also enriches flows with AWS data not reported in VPC Flow Logs natively.
