cef - a CEF and Syslog Logging Library
CEF is a proprietary format by Arcsight that details how to format messages for easy integration into Arcsights NSM products. Arcsight controls the standard, and it can be requested here.
This is a basic library for implementing CEF logging using a simple API.
cef.generateCEF(...) to generate a string that is formatted as a CEF log entry
cef.syslog(...) to generate that string and write it to syslog
See example.js for a detailed example on how to use the API.
Currently none; a copy of the syslog library from https://github.com/phuesler/ain is included with some inline patches to remove some extra bits that interfere with CEF.
