Sample SIEM event notifications

​Akamai Control Center​ events can -- and do -- differ from one another: entityUpdate events (in which authenticated users make changes to their use profiles) are very different from authenticationFailedUnknownUser events, events where we don't even know who the user is (and, as the name implies, where authentication never even took place). Because events differ, that also means that event notifications differ: the information included in an entityUpdate event won't be the same as the information included in an authenticationFailedUnknownUser event.

To give you a heads-up on what your event notifications will look like, this page includes sample notifications for the following SIEM event types:

  • authenticationFailedKnownUser
  • authenticationFailedUnknownUser
  • credentialAuthenticationAttemptsExceededKnownUser
  • credentialAuthenticationAttemptsExceededUnknownUser
  • entityCreated
  • entityDeleted
  • entityUpdated
  • siem#legacy_social_registration
  • siem#legacy_social_signin
  • siem#legacy_traditional_registration)
  • siem#legacy_traditional_signin
  • siem#new_email_verification
  • siem#password_recover
  • siem#profile_create
  • siem#profile_delete
  • siem#profile_update

Keep in mind that these are sample notifications: the actual notifications that your organization receives could vary slightly. If you'd like more information about the values that appear on an event notification (values such as msts and origin), see SIEM event details.


authenticationFailedKnownUser

Indicates that authentication has failed for a known user (for example, a user recognized by his or her email address).
