Get OSSEC Extensions
This is actually a choice. We get this for our customers according to their requirements.
However, our Support Techs recommend an OSSEC Extension to help get the most out of the OSSEC+ implementation.
KOFE is a full GUI for OSSEC, based on Kibana and Elastic Search.
To get it, as root, we run:
oum install kofe kofe setup kofe list kofe install kofe-compliance-dashboard
