About PAVO Malware App for Splunk


This app provides dashboards and reports based on events from anti-malware systems. To do this, the app relies on the Splunk Common Information Model (CIM) for malware detection events. This means that the app can report on any malware/av data, as long as it has been on-boarded properly, and is available through the Malware data model.

A note on Splunk Data Model Acceleration and Disk Space

This app requires data model acceleration, which will use additional disk space. If you are using the Splunk App for Enterprise Security, this is already enabled, and should have been factored into your retention policies. If not, you should review the documentation on data model acceleration, how it uses disk space, and how to plan for it.

A note on the Splunk Common Information Model

As mentioned above, the app uses the CIM for malware events. The CIM allows you to take events from a number of sources or products, and report on them in one cohesive manner, using a common set of names for fields and event types.

Available Dashboards

Malware Overview

Provides a starting point for exploring your malware detection events. Most panels will drill-down to other pages in the application.

Signature Profile

Panels around a particular signature detected. Note that there is no normalization for the values of this field, so this will be dependent on the naming used by the vendor for the individual anti-malware products.

Destination Profile

Panels around a malware detected on a particular destination. The destination field in the Malware data model is the system on which the malware has been detected. This dashboard also contains a panel which shows malware operations (such as signatures being updated).

Category Profile

Panels with reports on category of malware. As with signature names, category names are not normalized across vendors.

File Name Profile

Reports on individual file names.

Malware Search (Advanced)

A form for finding events based on various field values.

Malware Sourcetypes (Advanced)

Information about the sourcetypes which are present in the accelerated data.

Because this App runs on Splunk Enterprise, all of the Splunk Enterprise system requirements apply.

This app depends on data models included in the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on, specifically the Malware data model. Please review the information on installing and using the Splunk Common Information Model Add-on and information on configuring the acceleration on the data model.

The Splunk Common Information Model Add-on can be downloaded from Splunkbase.

This app has been tested with versions 4.9 of the CIM add-on.

In order to make the app respond and load quickly, accelerated data models are used to provide summary data. For this data to be available, the Malware data model must be accelerated. Information on how to enable acceleration for the Malware data model can be found here. The data model must be accelerated for the length of time for which you would like to see reporting.
