FireMon is pleased to provide this overview of the new features and enhancements made for this Lumeta Enterprise Edition 4.3 release, which is recommended for all users.
|Lumeta Enterprise Edition 4.3|
The upgrade file is available now in FireMon User Center > Downloads.
We recommend that you upgrade your Lumeta Enterprise Scouts when you upgrade your Command Center. However, Enterprise Scouts 4.1x and later are compatible with the 4.3 version of the Command Center.
Lumeta 4.3 is compatible with Lumeta Cloud Scout 1.1 (release 1.20200401.105457.dev). No changes have been made to Lumeta CloudVisibility.
On the main menu, we've added a Help tab from which you can access the Lumeta API Reference in Swagger and this Support site, https://lumetadocs.firemon.com/.
The Lumeta 4.3 platform uses PostgreSQL 13 database, which is an upgrade from PostgreSQL 9.6.
A variety of support tools previously available only on Command Centers, including the capability to download a log bundle, are available from your Enterprise Scout GUI. On your Enterprise Scout, navigate to Settings > Support Tools to see the additions.
Integration with Security Manager
- All devices for which interface data is present, regardless of whether route data is present, are forwarded to FireMon Security Manager.
- Devices pushed from Lumeta to Security Manager are labeled by their "sysname" rather than their IP address. The IP Address is already listed under the Management IP column.
- Lumeta does not push 0.0.0.0/0, which would allow traffic from any IPv4.
- Lumeta removes duplicate devices before pushing them to Security Manager.
Operational Technology Dashboard
Lumeta introduces the addition of operational technology vendors mapped to IEEE data to provide our customers with visibility on these types devices.
Out-of-the-box dashboard assists in identifying Operational Technology (OT) vs. Information Technology (IT) and provides the details of each piece of equipment.
Device count (Y axis) by Type of Device (X axis)
Device count (Y axis) by Country (X axis)
Wondering which DNS server is configured on your Command Center?
- Browse to your DNS identifier from Settings > Zones > DNS.
- See the identifier on Settings > Lumeta Systems > System Information
DNS lookup has been add as a support tool from Settings > Support Tools > DNS Lookup.
- Additional Command Center and Enterprise Scout interfaces may be configured via the CLI or API without having to reinitialize the systems. More granular interface configuration management has been added via CLI submenus. You can see the multiple interfaces on Settings > Lumeta Systems > Interfaces.
"interface add" and "interface configure
DNS configuration commands have been added to the CLI.
Objective Command Check the values via CLI system dns Change the setting manually system dns manual "172.16.22.5,172.16.22.6" Check the current values in the config file cat /etc/resolv.conf Check the help output system dns<tab> system dns manual<?> system dns dhcp<?>
LDAP-enabled systems are supported through Lumeta upgrade.
LDAP-configured servers maintain their LDAP configuration through Lumeta upgrades.
When Lumeta is upgraded from a release in which LDAP was enabled, it will stay LDAP-enabled.
All Lumeta systems come with a new /etc/nslcd.conf file, regardless of LDAP status.
All External Data Connector (EDC) requests are checked against the Target and Eligible Lists.
A "true" or "false" Forwarding attribute displays in the Device Details > Attributes > System column to indicate whether or not the device described in that row forwards traffic.
Our product is called "Lumeta" on the GUI, CLI, and API. The names "Spectre" and "ESI" have been removed or replaced. However, the default hostname and root prompt is programmed to be "esi-" followed by the hex encoded IP address. This instance is temporary and will only remain until your system admin changes the host name.
Security Updates & STIG
Lumeta 4.3 resolves Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVEs) and incorporates a variety of security-related (and non-security-related) enhancements. See Security Advisories 4.3 (coming soon) for a list of CVEs resolved in this Lumeta 4.3 release. CVEs on our radar are also available.
