This app is designed to provide insight into the Boss of the SOC (BOTS) version 2 data set. To use the app, you will want to download our BOTS v2 dataset from https://events.splunk.com/BOTS_2_0_datasets.
The Full BOTSv2 Dataset
It’s "the whole enchilada." The dataset weighs in at around 16GB and is an exact copy of what was included in Splunk-hosted BOTS events throughout 2018 and early 2019.
The BOTSv2 "Attack Only" Dataset
The "Attack only" dataset is a pared-down version which eliminates the bulk of the "background noise" in return for a much more manageable total size of 3.2GB.
Follow the instructions provided with the dataset to install the data and the accompanying technical add-ons. The app is designed to look in the BOTSv2 index for this data.
You cannot use the GUI to install the full data set due to the size of it. The installation for both data sets is identical. Extract the directory structure from the tgz file. This can be done using whatever extraction tool you are most comfortable with.
When the extraction is complete, you will see a directory structure that looks like a standard Splunk app. The one difference is that there is a /var/lib/splunk/botsv2 directory that contains the events. This is by design. The indexes.conf file in the app maintains the pointer to this directory. Do not modify this structure!!!
Copy/Move the entire extracted BOTS directory into the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps directory. Start Splunk, open a search and run an All time search for index=botsv2 to validate your installation.
Advanced APT Hunting with Splunk Hands On Workshop 1.0
13 December 2018
This app is developed in support of the Advanced APT Hunting with Splunk Workshop based on the BOTS v2 data set.
It is designed to be installed on top of Splunk Enterprise and Enterprise Security running the BOTS v2 data set.
The Sankey visualization application is also required to ensure that this runs as designed.
Splunk AppInspect evaluates Splunk apps against a set of Splunk-defined criteria to assess the validity and security of an app package and components.
