Add-on for Open Threat Exchange

This is a modular input which collects data from Open Threat Exchange for indexing in Splunk.

Use this alone, or with it's partner app - the Supporting add-on for Open Threat Exchange -- to add OTX threat intelligence to Splunk and Splunk ES.

To report any issues please visit: https://github.com/lukemonahan/TA-otx

This add-on polls the OTX API and indexes pulses, and their related indicators, into Splunk.

You can then use these indicators and pulses you see fit, however if you are a Splunk for Enterprise Security user you should also get the partner app SA-otx, which uses this data to add threat indicators into the Splunk ES threat collections.

To use this add-on:

  1. Sign-up to OTX: https://otx.alienvault.com -- You will automatically be subscribed to public threats published by AlienVault, but you can also sign up to other useful groups and users. It's recommended that you subscribe to the groups and users you wish to follow now, so that the initial backfill gets all your subscribed pulses.
  2. Retrieve your API key at: https://otx.alienvault.com/api
  3. Create the Splunk index "otx"
  4. In Splunk, navigate to Inputs -> Open Threat Exchange and enter your API key. At this point you can also tune the collection interval, backfill period and other properties
  5. "Enable" the OTX input in Splunk

Soon after this point you should soon be able to see OTX data by searching:

index=otx sourcetype=otx:pulse

index=otx sourcetype=otx:indicator

Of note:
The otx:indicator events contain a pulse_id, which link it to the id of a corresponding otx:pulse.
The input picks up any modified pulses since last poll, so you may wish to use | dedup id to limit to the latest reported details of an individual otx:pulse
