Host system security exclusions

If security software is implemented in your environment to monitor and block unknown host system processes, Tanium recommends that a security administrator create exclusions to allow Tanium Client processes to run without interference. Tanium also recommends implementing advanced antivirus (AV) software that permits customized and detailed exclusions that typically do not block known Tanium processes. Some AV software might require excluding the installation directories of the Tanium Client and (for Windows deployments) Tanium Core Platform servers from real-time inspection. Typically, configuring trusted exclusions also involves setting a policy to ignore the input and output of Tanium binaries. The configuration of these exclusions varies based on the AV software.

In certain implementations, creating the security exclusions and optimizations described in the following sections might increase the attack vulnerability of a system and might expose devices to various security threats. Using advanced AV software that permits detailed exclusions potentially reduces risk while limiting Tanium performance impacts. Tanium recommends rigorously testing any exclusions or optimizations in a lab environment to thoroughly understand any impact on security and performance before implementation. Tanium also strongly recommends that you involve your AV vendor and security teams in reviewing these guidelines before applying them.

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

Tanium Client Core Platform folders

If you plan to implement exclusions on a folder-by-folder basis, the following table lists Tanium Client Core Platform folders that Tanium recommends AV and other host-based security applications exclude from real-time scans. Include subfolders of these locations when you create the exception rules.

Whenever a new action runs on a managed endpoint, the Tanium Client adds a subfolder to contain the associated package files. The parent folder is <Tanium Client installation folder>/Downloads and the subfolder is named Action_<ID>, where <ID> is the action identifier. Include the Action_<ID> subfolders when you create exception rules for Tanium Clients.

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 choose to exclude the <Tanium Server installation folder>/Downloads subfolder if it was moved out of the installation folder. See Tanium Core Platform Deployment Guide for Windows: Relocate the package file repository.

2 For additional folder exclusions that Tanium recommends during Tanium Client installation, see Tanium Client Management User Guide: Security exclusions for Client Management.

Tanium Client Core Platform system processes

The following table lists Tanium Client Core Platform system processes that Tanium recommends allowing (not blocking, quarantining, or otherwise processing). 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 choose 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 McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) is running in your environment, Tanium recommends marking 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 Wsusscn2.cab.

Tanium binary file signers

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

 Table 3: Tanium binary file signers
Operating system Signer
Windows Files are signed by:

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

macOS The following Apple developer ID is used to sign and notarize files:

Tanium Inc. (TZTPM3VTUU)

Module Server solution folders

Tanium solutions are installed in subfolders of the Tanium Module Server installation folder. This facilitates any exclusion rules that you create: simply exclude the Module Server installation folder and its subfolders. This applies only to a Module Server installed on Windows infrastructure.

Solution-specific exclusions

The following sections list additional processes, folders, and files on the Module Server (Windows infrastructure only) and Tanium Client (all OSs) that Tanium recommends you configure as exclusions in security software to enable the latest versions of Tanium modules and shared services to work. To view version-specific exclusions for any Tanium solution, see the PDF Archive.

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.
