Authentic8 Silo collects certain log data to provide administrators with visibility into their users’ activities. Logged data includes: user’s navigation history, administrator actions, authentication events, session parameters, web form post data (if logs are encrypted). Customer specific log data is stored for 90 days after which it is deleted from Authentic8 databases. In addition to programmatic API access to this data, Log data can be extracted from the Admin Console of Silo application.


From the Admin Console, click the Manage button.

The Log window opens,

1. Select a Start date (required), the End date is optional.

    2. Click the drop-down menu and select a format.


3. Select ‘Download customer encrypted Logs’ or ‘Download clear text logs’. If you select ‘Download customer encrypted Logs’, go to Step 5.

4. If you select ‘Download clear text logs’, select a log type (required)

5. Click the Download button.

Log Type*

Log Type

Authentication logs contain entries of users’ authentication attempts such as PIN Authentication method for users created prior since early 2013); SAML Auth

Blocked URL

Blocked URL data tracks the access of sites/domains prevented from Category or Domain Filtering policies.

CookiesCookie data is part of a normal URL request, but the data is considered sensitive. URLs are always logged, but the sensitive data is only logged when Encrypted Logs policy is Enabled and, therefore, is only present in decrypted logs.

Download logs contain info of user file download activities and file info.

ExploitsGenerates a log when an exploit is discovered while downloading a file to the local computer. The delivered values will change based on if the user decides to download the malware.
Post Data
Post data (form posts only) is sensitive so only logged when Encrypted Logs is Enabled. It may or may not map to a URL entry. The post method specifies a destination, but the response page is usually different than the target of the post. Not all form posts result in a traditional post, and Silo does not gather all xhr posts because this would result in a large amount of useless data.
