yes this is from a cisco ASA and I can't change the format. i do need to put this in a datatbase .
 lines 3 through 13 would cover one complete entry.

Index, Hashing, NAC, Vlan Mapping, and vlan data is not needed

Thanks

I can think of some ways to make this work, but I dont have an exact code for it so let me explain the basics:

1: Create your import specification
2: When you perform the import, you need two pieces of info: which text file to import and what table to insert into.
3: Set up the code with what text to filter out.
4: Read text from the file and put it into a String
5: Put the String into a "insert into" sql statement
6: Repeat to endOfFile

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.
