FireMon is pleased to provide this overview of the new features and enhancements made for this Lumeta Enterprise Edition 4.5 release, which is recommended for all users. 

Lumeta Enterprise Edition 4.5

The upgrade file will soon be available in FireMon User Center > Downloads.
The supported upgrade path to Lumeta Command Center 4.5 is from the 4.3 and 4.4 versions.

For the upgrade procedure, see Upgrading to Lumeta Enterprise Edition 4.5.

We recommend that you upgrade your Lumeta Enterprise Scouts when you upgrade your Command Center. However, Enterprise Scouts 4.3x and 4.4x are compatible with the 4.5 version of the Command Center. 


Migrate Zones

All of the back-end code that supports configuring Zones has been migrated to a state-of-the-art framework that makes the front-end GUI easier to read. 

New GUI of Lumeta 4.5 Zone Collectors 

Previous GUI of Lumeta 4.4 Zone Collectors 

VmWare ESXi hosts offer profiling data tied to every hosted VMs MAC address. When you use SNMP protocol from ESXi hosts in Lumeta, you can now improve the asset profiles by retrieving version information as highlighted in the examples below: 

  1. SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876. = STRING: "Linux 4.4.243-1.ph1 VMware Photon 1.0 Photon VMware Photon 1.0 "
  2. SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876. = STRING: "Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition, 64-bit  (Build 9600)"
  3. SNMPv2-SMI::enterprises.6876. = STRING: "Linux 3.10.0-1160.31.1.el7.x86_64 CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)"

Randomize Targets 

The use of system resources increases sharply when millions of scan targets are configured at once. Typically this would occur when configuring a large number of targets via the API or by uploading a CSV of targets. To prevent this spike, we're providing customers with a query and an API call that will enable targets to be randomized across a rescan interval. That API call is at https://<command center>/api/rest/zone/<zone number>/randomize targets

  Sample API call:

curl -H "Content-Length: 0" -v -X POST -k -u admin:admin "https://yourcommandcenter/api/rest/zone/1/randomizeTargets"

SNMP Device Inventory

 Added phase 1 support to give Lumeta the capability to identify and gather information on the software and hardware inventory of SNMP speaking devices

DNS Error Handling

The DNS scanner interface now prompts users to delimit Internal DNS Servers entries with commas. Whitespace is automatically removed and error messages have been made more informative.

An entry like this is valid and would save without errors. 

Azure Resource Groups

In Cloud scanner, there's no longer a need to bulk-upload a list of resource groups. Instead, just leave the Resource Group field empty to accomplish the same objective. To upload just one Resource Group, specify it by name. 

Database Schema

The Lumeta 4.5 database schema shows a visual representation of the Lumeta database. 

CLI Commands

Though spare in appearance, the Lumeta CLI is a powerful interface. To administer your system via command-line interface, see System Administration via CLI.

Security Updates & STIG 

Lumeta 4.5 resolves Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures (CVEs) and incorporates a variety of security-related (and non-security-related) enhancements. See Security Advisories 4.5 for a list of CVEs resolved in this Lumeta 4.5 release.
