I have been an off and on user of TheHive for nearly a year now, and it is encouraging to see the development and release of TheHive4 (even if in pre-release). In this post I will walk through the deployment, configuration and migration of TheHive to TheHive4, and what improvements have been implemented into this release.
As part of my final Masters degree research component I have been collecting data from honeypots which I have seeded around the globe. The objective being to distil this data in to organisational threat data based on a fictitious business.
Part of the complication I am going to start facing, is how to how Elasticsearch and Kibana to find specific information for me from this live data set.
Previously I have indicated that a data set exists which was produced by the Canadian Institute for Cybersecurity, called IDS 2018, which contains Windows Event Logs and PCAP files relating to a set of simulated attacks generated for the purposes of teaching people how to hunt within similar datasets.
Here I will be discussing the deployment, configuration and interaction with this data set to achieve the outcome required.

For the most part we can try to reply on virus detection and heuristics to detect potentially malicious files, but what about those files which have not yet been identified, or have been specifically crafted for your organisation as a targeted attack?

Over the last few months I have been playing with Cuckoo, and reworking its function to suit my own requirements. Part of this has involved the separation of components within Cuckoo into functional units. This particular component relates to extracting the RAM from a VirtualBox machine for analysis after ceasing the VM. For this to…
