Cisco-ASA Syslog Simulator Sender

As we know, the security market are tools that make storage and interpretation of log files, syslog more precisely, it is a protocol typically used in safety systems, being used by Cisco-ASA firewall system.

Often we are faced with the need to get small programs that help in sending Syslog’s for logs correlation testing tools, example AlienVault OSSIM¬†or Splunk that make correlation of various types of syslog’s available in the market, including the Syslog of the firewall’s Cisco -WING.

How can we test the receipt of these specific syslogs to know if the log interpretation system works perfectly?

Without having a Cisco ASA firewall-only testing, our team has developed a simple application in Java that is sending syslog messages via UDP simulated for the correlation server.
