New log source support: WinCollect

Status : New Idea

One of our suppliers changed the solution they are collecting security logs from Windows. The new solution is called WinCollect ( WinCollect transfers the Windows events into it's own format which is currrently not supported by ArcSight. As Windows security logs are an essential key stone for todays IT security we require the support of this log source.

It is generated on the computer that was accessed.  The subject fields indicate the account on the local system which requested the logon. This is most commonly a service such as the Server service, or a local process such as Winlogon.exe or Services.exe.  The logon type field indicates the kind of logon that occurred. The most common types are 2 (interactive) and 3 (network).  The New Logon fields indicate the account for whom the new logon was created, i.e. the account that was logged on.  The network fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.  The impersonation level field indicates the extent to which a process in the logon session can impersonate.  The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.  - Logon GUID is a unique identifier that can be used to correlate this event with a KDC event.  - Transited services indicate which intermediate services have participated in this logon request.  - Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.  - Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested

Technical challenge: it was (for us) not possible to somehow integrate and reuse existing parser and pre-processors.
