Understanding the different type of logging provided in SSDC (Sterling Sensitive Data Capture Server)


System where SSDCS has configured

Resolving the problem

SSDCS includes basic logging functionality. However, user can change logging parameters in the log4j configuration XML file to control the location and level of the log files. A directory, <SSDCS_DIR>/log, is provided for storing the SSDCS log files. It is recommended that you set up an environment variable, such as SSDCS_LOG_DIR, to point to this location.

SSDCS provides the following log files, which can have different configurations:

ssdcs.log - Used for logging business logic issues, such as debugging and timing information. For example, the system records anything that happens in the servlet as part of the tokenization process.

ssdcs_security.log - Used exclusively for logging security issues. The SSDCS security logger records the activity of any malicious requests that are detected, such as unauthorized users attempting to log in.

ssdcs_esapi.log - Used for debugging the ESAPI setup. Both ESAPI internal classes and SSDCS extensions and implementations are logged here.
