DAM Use case 2: Database Protection “Brute Force Login”

Database Protection “Brute Force Login”


  Installation of the McAfee DAM Sensor at the Database.

  Database monitoring configuration


We need to simulate that a general user or hacker try to login into the database to get the password using tools or social engineering and after many failed logon we have a successful logon.

  He logs in to the core of the database server after a multiple failed login.

  McAfee DAM sends an alert.


  Note: McAfee DAM will look that many failed authentications followed by a successful authentication by the same user and same IP address.

   He we can also create a correlation rule at the McAfee SIEM that will detect the Bruce force attack.
