NAME

BuzzSaw::Filter::SSH - A BuzzSaw event filter for SSH log entries

VERSION

This documentation refers to BuzzSaw::Filter::SSH version 0.12.0

SYNOPSIS

   my $filter = BuzzSaw::Filter::SSH->new();

   while ( defined( my $line = $fh->getline ) ) {
     my %event = $parser->parse_line($line);

     my ( $accept, @tags ) = $filter->check(\%event);

     if ($accept) {
        # store log entry in DB
     }
   }

DESCRIPTION

This is a Moose class which provides a filter which implements the BuzzSaw::Filter role. It is used to filter log entries and find those associated with the SSH daemon. An event will be accepted for storage if it is related to a login being accepted or failed. When an event is accepted by the SSH filter module it returns ssh and auth tags along with one of auth_success or auth_failure.

The BuzzSaw project provides a suite of tools for processing log file entries. Entries in files are parsed and filtered into a set of events of interest which are stored in a database. A report generation framework is also available which makes it easy to generate regular reports regarding the events discovered.
