Dear All,

What is the meaning of Anonymizing Traffic in a SIEM. Does it mean some users are using Tor related applications?

Thanks,
T

Depends on SIEM category. But yes it should be referring to TOR which is one example of anonymised traffic. You have to trace down to machine with that idenified source ip from within your network to further confirm if user is really TOR browser or other software. You can also check content filter log with this event using anonymous website as proxy for internet surfing
