Having a Unified Security Policy (USP) requires to have network zones defined, filled with all relevant networks.
This is done in SecureTrack via Menu > Network > Zones. Only zones defined here can be used in an USP configuration.
There are some pre-defined zones:
This zone includes all official IP-Adresses that are not defined to be in any other zone
- Unassociated Networks
This zone includes all private IP-Adresses (RFC 1918) that are not defined to be in any other zone
- Users Networks
This zone includes all networks that users connect to (e.g. used in Check Point Identity Awareness)
Based on interface information of devices, zones are allocated with interfaces automatically - except the zone Internet.
Tufin SecureChange calculates "Risk" in Access Requests in the classic way while SecureTrack uses for the calculation of "Violations" a specific configuration that can be adapted.
To modify interfaces and zones, it's necessary to go to the USP list, i.e. Menu > Audit > Compliance > Unified Security Policy. Here you select an USP to modify the relationship of Interface - Zone. This is done by pressing the button "Preferences". A window opens, so you can modify the allocations manually.
In this example, the Interface "pppoe2" has no associated zone even if (in real live) the "Internet" is connected to this Interface. To configure this, select the interface and then the button "Edit" at the top right. Here, you select the zone that shall be connected to this Interface.
After having done so, the configration is changed by pressing the button "save".
So from now on, calculations regarding "violations" consider this configuration and zone association.
Please regard: Be sure to document well all changes done this way!
In SecureTrack Audit Trail only this message is shown "Unified security policy configuration - Modify - Device - FWGW-Office - Modify was done by MeAdmin on interface/zone mapping for device FWGW-Office".
Changes done here have direct impact on "violations", so every configuration change needs to be documented well.
The calculation of "violations" is done when a new revision arrives to SecureTrack, a USP is changed or the Topology (Interactive Map) is synchronized.

Since Check Point R80 it's necessary not to connect Tufin SecureTrack to a Check Point Management using only OPSEC, but a HTTPS connection to the Check Point Management API is necessary also. This might result in a scenario shown here.
Problem and Symptom
- Monitoring the Check Point Management R80x has been configured successful in SecureTrack i.e. connections using OPSEC and Managmenent API are configured and certificates have been retrieved.
- Testing the connectivity by SecureTrack has been successful
- Starting the newly monitored Check Point Management has been successful, the icon is indicated with a grren sign - so everything seems ok
- no revisions are retrieved
- in the file /var/log/st/checkpont.get_checkpoint_conf_<IP>_<ID>.log an information is shown:
[main::c.t.s.c.GetCheckpointConf.handleVersionMismatch] [user:] Device Version Mismatch : The Device Got Version mismatch returning device version for updating db
[main::c.t.s.c.GetCheckpointConf.handleVersionMismatch] [user:] Server API version 1.5, Max supported API version 1.5, argument API version 1.1
Tufin SecureTrack seems to take the wrong version of the Check Point API. This isn't always the case, but it might happen. In this case, SecureTrack tries version 1.1, but the Check Point Server uses version 1.5. This needs to be adjusted, using these steps:
- Check if the file /usr/local/st/javatools/config.properties is present
- If not, create a new file using vi or another CLI editor and
- insert this line:
This defines the version SecureTrack shall take for monitoring Check Point Management R80.x.
The version shown above is fine for the logs above, but if necessary take another (correct) version
- Restart the monitoring of this device in SecureTrack by
# st restart <ID>
Short after these steps, a revision should show up in SecureTrack.
- Category: Version update
Tufin has released TOS R20-1, the first version of the Tufin Orchestration Suite in 2020. TOS 20-1 is available as GA now, delivering some improvements, e.g.
Change Automation and Orchestration
- Improvement of Rule Modification Workflow
This type of workflow has been introduced with R19-3. This version allows to create tickets to change Source and Destionation of an existing rule. With R20-1 now also Services can be added / changed / removed from a rule.
Supported devices are Check Point R80, Cisco ASA, Cisco FMC, Palo Alto Panorama, and Juniper SRX.
- Enhancements in SecureApp User Permissions
More flexibility for roles and permissions in SecureApp, e.g. configuration whether users are allowed to use Server Resources in their Application Connections. Besides this, Tufin has enhanced the Security Segmentation if Interconnected Domains are configred.
Devices and Platforms
- Support of IPv6 in Topology
SecureTrack Topology supports IPv6, i.e. it can be used in the Interactive Map for e.g. paths and traffic simulation.
Supported are currently Cisco IOS-XR, Check Point R80, and Fortinet FortiManager in Advanced Mode.
- Fortinet IPv6 automation in non-topology mode
If Topology isn't used in SecureChange (require e.g. manual Target selection), IPv6 objects in SecureChange Access Requests can be used in automation. So change processes can be automated working with IPv4 as well as IPv6 objects.
- Enhancements for Licensing page
Some improvements have been implemented to deliver more clarity regarding available and bound licenses.
- Cisco FMC Zones Support - Automation
For Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC) devices in non-topology mode specific zone-to-zone mapping can be chosen in SecureChange Access Requests. This can also be used in automated changes.
- Cisco Firepower Rule and Object Usage
The enhanced rule usage capabilities and features in SecureTrack can now be used for FMC devices, i.e. metadata for rules are calculated and shown in Policy Browser.
- Palo Alto Panorama Dynamic Address Group (DAG) support with Tags
The content of Dynamic Access Groups based on Panorama Tags can be shown in SecureTrack, improving visibility and traffic analysis (also in Topology).
- Hashicorp Vault Support for Amazon AWS
This option can be used to store Amazon AWS authentication credentials and to provide tight access control to the AWS. Instead of connecting directly to the AWS, SecureTrack can receive a token for authentication and communication with the AWS device.
- Support of additional devices and versions
- Check Point R80.40, supporting Check Point API version 1.5
- Cisco Firepower Management Center (FMC) 6.5
- Forcepoint SMC 6.5.10
- F5 BIG IP 14.1
- Palo Alto PanOS firewall version 9.1
- Palo Alto Panorama version 9.0.4, 9.1
- VMware NSX-V version 6.4.6
- Management of Generic Interfaces, Generic Routes, and Generic VPN
New API calls are available, supporting full functionality - e.g. get Generic Interface by ID, get Generic Interfaces for a device, get Generic Route by ID, get Generic Routes for a device, get Generic VPN by ID, get Generic VPNs for a device.
- Management of Device Connections for Firewalls in Transparent Mode
Managing L2 Firewalls is now integrated and possible using REST API.
- Management of Ignored Interfaces
It's possible to exclude selected Interfaces from SecureTrack Topology. They can now being managed using REST API.
- Device Interfaces and Domains
When working with Domains in SecureTrack, now REST API can be used to associate an interface óf a device with a Domain ID.
- Cloud Management
The Interactive Map uses Clouds in some situations. Now the management of Joining Clouds can be done via REST API.
- Enhancements of User Management
Management of SecureChange and SecureApp users is enhanced when REST API is used, esp. management of Groups.
- Rule Modification Workflow
As shown above, Service can now be changed for a rule. This can also be done with REST API.
- Ticket Search in SecureChange
Pagination can now be used in REST API to shorten response time and to limit the amount of data returned by rule search APIs.
Further improvements as well as corrections are included.
The latest version of the Tufin Orchestration Suite can be found at the Tufin Portal: https://portal.tufin.com

Besides standard functionality, Tufin offers extra tools like "Reporting Pack". This requires a special library, called PS Scripts. First of all, you need to download the file from the Tufin Portal (authentication required):
- PS Script 5.5.7 (for Reporting Tool) Setup
(credentials for access to SecureTrack and SecureChange are requested)
After having downloaded This file, it's necessary to install the package - and please remember to create a backup of your Tufin Server before doing so!
Then install the library (as root or with sudo on e.g. SecureTrack Server for Reporting Pack):
- # /bin/sh setup_tufin_ps_scripts-5.5.7.run -W
Be sure not to forget the "-W" (upper case) when installing the libary. Credentials needed are "Super Admin" for SecureTrack and "Security Administrator" for SecureChange.
To check a successful installation of the library, run the command
# ls /opt/tufin/securitysuite/ps/conf/WEB_ENABLED
If this file exists, everything is fine. You can also check if the service is running using the command
# /etc/init.d/tufin-ps-web status
The service should be running. If not, you may try to start it via CLI.
To check the version of the library, use
# cat /opt/tufin/securitysuite/ps/PS-version, Logs are stored in the directory /var/log/ps/Tufin_PS_Logger.log.
If all work is done, you can install Reporting Pack or use the library for Tufin PS or your own scripts.
