    Problem 1:
    “IP’s manually banned aren’t setting iptables entries”

    from /var/log/secast

    Problem 2:
    “attacks aren’t being detected”

    On the Asterisk console:

    Some relevant /etc/xdg/telium/secast.conf snippets

    [banip] ;==================================================================
    ; This stanza refers to how SecAst will block/allow IP addresses, as well
    ; as how it tracks blocked IP addresses.

    ; Flush any pre-existing IP’s found in fireall’s SecAst list on program
    ; start. Any pre-existing IP’s found will not be automatically removed
    ; after timeout period (they can be manually controlled only)
    ; Valid values: Yes/True/1 / No/False/0
    flushonstart=0

    ; Flush any pre-existing IP’s found in firewalls’ SecAst list on program
    ; exit
    ; Valid values: Yes/True/1 / No/False/0
    flushonexit=0

    ; Perform internal tracking as if an IP were banned by firewall, but do not
    ; actually add detected intrusion IP’s to firewall. Affecting messages will be
    ; prefixed with [TESTMODE] in the event log. This may cause some additional
    ; warnings to appear in the log file but they can be safely ignored.
    ; Valid values: Yes/True/1 No/False/0
    testmode=false

    ; Number of hours for which an IP will be banned. Minimum is 1 hour,
    ; maximum is 168 hours (i.e. 1 week). Warning: if you firewall is slowing
    ; down network traffic because the SecAst list is too large, reduce the
    ; duration.
    ; Valid range: 1 to 168 hours (i.e. 1 hour to 7 days)
    duration=72

    ; Should IP addresses already found blocked in firewall’s SecAst list be
    ; treated as managed (i.e. automatically delete after duration)
    ; Valid values include Yes/True/1 / No/False/0
    manageexisting=true

    ; Should IP addresses manually added be treated as managed
    ; (i.e. automatically delete after duration)
    ; Valid values include Yes/True/1 / No/False/0
    managemanual=true

    ; Should firewall actions use iptables. If set to false, then SecAst will
    ; rely only on the external program listed below. If the externalprogam is blank,
    ; then no ip firewalling will take place
    ; Valid values include Yes/True/1 / No/False/0
    useiptables=true

    ; Whether or not to save banip data to the SQL database.
    ; Valid values include Yes/True/1 / No/False/0
    ; If left blank will default to false
    savetodb=

    ; Number of days of banip data to retain. Data beyond this number
    ; of days will be purged on a daily basis. This value is measured in days. If
    ; set to 0 then data will be retained indefinately (i.e. never purge).
    ; Valid range: 0, 1 to 1095 (i.e. indefinite, or 1 day to 3 years)
    ; If left blank will default to 30
    dbretentiondays=20

    [network] ;==================================================================

    ;Address to listen on for management interface
    ; LocalHostIPv4 The IPv4 localhost address. Equivalent to
    ; QHostAddress(“127.0.0.1”).
    ; LocalHostIPv6 The IPv6 localhost address. Equivalent to
    ; QHostAddress(“::1”).
    ; AnyIPv4 The IPv4 any-address. Equivalent to
    ; QHostAddress(“0.0.0.0”). A socket bound with this
    ; address will listen only on IPv4 interaces.
    ; AnyIPv6 The IPv6 any-address. Equivalent to QHostAddress(“::”).
    ; A socket bound with this address will listen only on
    ; IPv6 interaces.
    ; Any The dual stack any-address. A socket bound with this
    ; address will listen on both IPv4 and IPv6 interfaces.
    ; 1.2.3.4 The specific IPv4 address
    ; 1111:2222:3333:4444:5555:6666:7777:8888 The specific IPv6 address
    managementaddress=anyipv4

    ;Port to listen on for management interface.
    ; Set to 0 to use a random port
    managementport=3000

    ; Subnets considered trusted. If more than one network is required then
    ; seperate them with pipes (|). Networks must be in the form: X.X.X.X/B
    ; For example, 1.2.3.4/24 means subnet 1.2.3.4 with 24 bit mask, also known
    ; as 255.255.255.0 bitmask
    trustednetworks=10.0.0.0/24 | 192.168.90.0/24

    [credentials] ;=================================================================
    ; This stanza refers to detection attempts to gain access to the Asterisk system
    ; resources using invalid credentials

    ; Maximum number of seconds between intrusion attempts (use of resources with
    ; invalid credentials), to be considered part of a single attack window. (If
    ; intrusions are spaced beyond this interval, then they are considered to be in
    ; seperate attack windows). Extend this number if you find attackers are
    ; spreading their attempts over hours or days.
    ; Valid range: 1-604800 (i.e. 1 second to 1 week)
    ; Default: 60
    maxintrusioninterval=3500

    ; Maximum number of intrusion attempts within a single attack window before banning
    ; the source IP. Set this number as low as possible without frustrating valid
    ; users.
    ; Valid range: 1 to 100
    ; Default: 3
    maxintrusions=1

    Problem 1: iptables rules not being created

    When SecAst starts it creates a SECAST chain linked into your iptables’ INPUT chain like this:


    Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
    target prot opt source destination
    SECAST all — anywhere anywhere

    And the SECAST chain is where dropping of attackers’ IP’s occurs. I see from your iptables list that the above rule is missing – and that’s why you are not able to block attacker IP’s. So the question is why is the SECAST chain rule being refused/lost. Are you updating/flushing your iptables rules (eg: regenerating using FireHOL) after SecAst starts? Is there an error in the SecAst log upon service start indicating any iptables related errors?

    Problem 2: Attackers not detected

    You did not include the [asterisk] stanza of your secast.conf, so ensure the securityevents key is blank (use the AMI), or points to a valid /var/log/asterisk/messages file. That’s usually the cause.

    I suggest you stop SecAst, delete the secast log file, and restart Secast, then manually ban 1 IP. Either post the secast log (or send to support@telium.io if you are concerned about making content public) and we can look there for further clues.

    If this is a commercial environment keep in mind that we recommend blocking attackers at the network edge (firewall) – letting SecAst add rules to your firewall.

    Your recommendation may have worked. Evidence follows…

    This is a home installation.

    My intent is to let SecAst modify the firewall as necessary. I am concerned about interactions between SecAst and FireHOL. I have a lot more interaction with FireHOL than SecAst, so I’d really like a way to allow SecAst to “self heal” even if it is semi-automatic/manual. I could envision a command such as “SecAst> iptables init” with others such as “SecAst> iptables list” to show/verify what SecAst added to iptables. Or every N number of minutes (or with each new “detected” attack), have SecAst verify it’s installation in iptables and restore iptables as necessary from the BanIP list. Or even better, is there something I can add to FireHOL config /etc/firehol/firehol.conf which will call SecAst to re-add/verify it’s installation in iptables?

    I really like your phpBB installation, very effective!

    Thank you for your help. I suspect SecAst is now running properly until I accidentally break it again with FireHOL. 😳

    Glad you are up and running. If you need SecAst to recreate its iptables rules just restart the SecAst service (it will restore all banned IP since it keeps those in a recovery file). We’ll have to think about how/if SecAst should monitor the iptables. It’s unusual for the iptables rules to be lost (so SecAst shouldn’t have to check that) – but it’s on our discussion list.

    In regards to downloading, what error exactly are you experiencing? (Corrupt download, or download won’t start, etc). Downloading by browser is often unreliable for large files, but FTP normally works perfectly. We just tried FTP (pull) and the file downloaded perfectly (no corruption, etc). We also tried downloading with Firefox version 53 (32 bit) and browser download worked fine 2 of 3 times (one time download was corrupt so it would not untar). Similarly downloading by Chrome worked 3 of 4 times. You can see why we offer FTP…browsers aren’t great for this kind of thing. (Since this is a different topic feel free to email support@telium.io if you have more details on file transfer issue)

    Although this topic is a year old, it continues to get a lot of traffic. So, I would like to reiterate a key point mentioned above (in case you missed it):

    You should not block IP’s at the PBX. (Unless this is test/home system). Commercial environments should block attackers at the firewall. SecAst has the ability to add IP’s to ACL’s/lists on your router / firewall. You really should use this feature!
