Host system security exclusions

To monitor and block unknown host system processes, many organizations use security software, such as host-based firewalls and antivirus detection. To ensure that such software does not interfere with Tanium operations, work with your network and security team to allow Tanium Client folders and processes, so that the software treats them as trusted exclusions. Typically, this means configuring the security software to exclude the installation directories of the Tanium Client and (for Windows deployments) Tanium Core Platform servers from real-time inspection. Configuring trusted exclusions also typically involves setting a policy to ignore input and output from Tanium binaries.

Tanium Core Platform servers do not require host system security exclusions in a Tanium Appliance deployment. Tanium Clients on all operating systems (OSs) require host system security exclusions.

Tanium Client Core Platform folders

The following table lists Tanium Client Core Platform folders that antivirus and other host-based security applications must exclude from real-time scans. Include subfolders of these locations when you create the exception rules. The listed folder paths are the defaults. If you changed the folder locations to non-default paths, create rules based on the actual locations.

1 You might also have to exclude the Tanium Server Downloads directory if it was moved out of the installation directory using the instructions in the KB article Relocate Downloads Directory.

2 For additional folder exclusions that are required during Tanium Client installation, see Client Management.

Tanium Client Core Platform system processes

The following table lists Tanium Client Core Platform system processes that must be allowed (not blocked, quarantined, or otherwise processed). The <Tanium Client> variable indicates the client installation folder. The variables such as <Module Server> indicate the installation folder of the platform servers and Tanium Client.

  • If you use Microsoft Group Policy Objects (GPO) or other central management tools to manage host firewalls, you might need to create rules to allow inbound and outbound TCP traffic across port 17472 and port 17486 on any managed endpoints, including the Tanium Server.
  • If running McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS), mark the Tanium Client as both Trusted for Firewall and Trusted for IPS, per McAfee KB71704.
  • The Tanium Client on Windows uses the Windows Update offline scan file, Wsusscn2.cab, to assess computers for installed or missing OS and application security patches. If your endpoint security solutions scan archive files, refer to the Microsoft KB for information on how to configure those tools to interact appropriately with the Wsusscn2.cab file.

Tanium binary file signer

Some security products base exclusion rules on file signers. Tanium uses an extended validation (EV) code-signing certificate with the following signer for the Tanium-generated binary files of Tanium Core Platform servers, Tanium Clients, and Tanium modules. Tanium also uses this certificate to sign VBS and PS1 files within action packages:

Subject: jurisdictionC=US/jurisdictionST=Delaware/businessCategory=Private Organization/serialNumber=4332270, C=US, ST=CA, L=Emeryville, O=Tanium Inc., CN=Tanium Inc.

Solution module folders

As a rule, Tanium solution modules are installed in subdirectories of the Tanium Module Server installation directory. This facilitates any exclusion rules you must create: simply exclude the Module Server installation directory and its subdirectories. This requirement applies only to a Module Server installed on Windows infrastructure.

Solution module processes

The following sections list additional processes on the Module Server (Windows infrastructure only) and Tanium Client (all OSs) that you must configure as exclusions in security software to enable Tanium modules and shared services to work.

The following sections use variables (such as <Module Server>) to indicate the installation folder of a Tanium Core Platform server or the Tanium Client. The following sections use the <Tanium Client> variable to indicate the client installation folder.
