Build Status Code Climate Coverage Status Gem Version

Evident Security Platform SDK

A Ruby interface for calling the Evident.io API.

This Readme is for the V2 version of the ESP SDK. For V1 information, see the V1 WIKI.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

 gem 'esp_sdk'

And then execute:

 bundle

Or install it yourself as:

 gem install esp_sdk

Configuration

Set your HMAC security keys:

You must set your access_key_id and your secret_access_key.
You can set these directly:

ESP.access_key_id = <your key>
ESP.secret_access_key = <your secret key>

or with environment variables:

ENV['ESP_ACCESS_KEY_ID'] = <you key>
ENV['ESP_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'] = <your secret key>

or, if in a Rails application, you can use the configure block in an initializer:

ESP.configure do |config|
  config.access_key_id = <your key>
  config.secret_access_key = <your secret key>
end

Get your HMAC keys from the Evident.io website, esp.evident.io

Set a Proxy URI

If you need to go through a proxy server, you can set the proxy URI. You can set this directly:

ESP.http_proxy = <proxy uri>

or, if in a Rails application, you can use the configure block in an initializer:

ESP.configure do |config|
  config.http_proxy = <proxy uri>
end

Alternatively, the proxy can also be set with an environment variable.

export http_proxy=<proxy uri>

Appliance Users

Users of Evident.io's AWS marketplace appliance will need to set the host for their appliance instance. You can set this directly:

ESP.host = <host for appliance instance>

or, if in a Rails application, you can use the configure block in an initializer:

ESP.configure do |config|
  config.host = <host for appliance instance>
end

Alternatively, the site can also be set with an environment variable.

export ESP_HOST=<host for appliance instance>

Usage

Everything is an Object

The Evident.io SDK uses Active Resource, so the DSL acts very much like Active Record providing by default, the standard CRUD actions find, all, create, update, destroy, only instead of a database as the data store, it makes calls to the Evident.io API. Not all methods are available for all ESP objects. See the documentation to see all the methods available for each object. So, for instance, to get a report by ID:

espsdk:003:0> report = ESP::Report.find(234)

And to get the alerts for that report:

espsdk:003:0> alerts = report.alerts

For objects that are creatable, updatable, and destroyable, you make the exact same calls you would expect to use with Active Record.

espsdk:003:0> team = ESP::Team.create(name: 'MyTeam', organization_id: 452, sub_organization_id: 599)
    
espsdk:003:0> team.name = 'NewName'
espsdk:003:0> team.save
    
espsdk:003:0> team.destroy

Use the attributes method to get a list of all available attributes that each object has.

espsdk:003:0> team = ESP::Team.find(1)
espsdk:004:0> team.attributes
# => {
# =>                       "id" => "1",
# =>                     "type" => "teams",
# =>            "relationships" => #<ESP::Team::Relationships:0x007fdf1b451710 @attributes={"sub_organization"=>#<ESP::SubOrganization:0x007fdf1b450d60 @attributes={"data"=>#<ESP::SubOrganization::Data:0x007fdf1b450978 @attributes={"id"=>"1", "type"=>"sub_organizations"}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>, "links"=>#<ESP::SubOrganization::Links:0x007fdf1b4503b0 @attributes={"related"=>"http://localhost:3000/api/v2/sub_organizations/1.json"}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>, "organization"=>#<ESP::Organization:0x007fdf1b45bbc0 @attributes={"data"=>#<ESP::Organization::Data:0x007fdf1b45b7d8 @attributes={"id"=>"1", "type"=>"organizations"}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>, "links"=>#<ESP::Organization::Links:0x007fdf1b45b210 @attributes={"related"=>"http://localhost:3000/api/v2/organizations/1.json"}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>, "external_accounts"=>#<ESP::Team::Relationships::ExternalAccounts:0x007fdf1b45a040 @attributes={"data"=>[#<ESP::Team::Relationships::ExternalAccounts::Datum:0x007fdf1b458830 @attributes={"id"=>"1", "type"=>"external_accounts"}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>], "links"=>#<ESP::Team::Links:0x007fdf1b463e38 @attributes={"related"=>"http://localhost:3000/api/v2/external_accounts.json"}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>}, @prefix_options={}, @persisted=true>,
# =>                     "name" => "Default Team",
# =>               "created_at" => "2015-09-23T14:37:48.000Z",
# =>               "updated_at" => "2015-09-23T14:37:48.000Z",
# =>      "sub_organization_id" => "1",
# =>          "organization_id" => "1",
# =>     "external_account_ids" => [
# =>         [0] "1"
# =>     ]
# => }

Errors

Active Resource objects have an errors collection, just like Active Record objects. If the API call returns a non fatal response, like validation issues, you can check the errors object to see what went wrong.

espsdk:003:0> t = ESP::Team.create(name: '')
espsdk:003:0> t.errors
# => {
# =>     :base => [
# =>         [0] "Organization can't be blank",
# =>         [1] "Sub organization can't be blank"
# =>     ],
# =>     :name => [
# =>         [0] "can't be blank"
# =>     ]
# => }

The errors will be in the :base key rather than the corresponding attribute key, since we have not defined a schema for the objects in order to stay more loosely coupled to the API.

espsdk:003:0> t.errors.full_messages
# => [
# =>     [0] "Organization can't be blank",
# =>     [1] "Sub organization can't be blank",
# =>     [2] "Name can't be blank"
# => ]

When an error is thrown, you can rescue the error and check the error message:

espsdk:003:0> c = ESP::CustomSignature.find(435)
espsdk:003:0> c.run!(external_account_id: 999)
# =>  ActiveResource::ResourceInvalid: Failed.  Response code = 422.  Response message = Couldn't find ExternalAccount. 
# =>    from /Users/kevintyll/evident/esp_sdk/lib/esp/resources/custom_signature.rb:23:in `run!'

begin
  c.run!(external_account_id: 999)
rescue ActiveResource::ResourceInvalid => e
  puts e.message
end
# => Failed.  Response code = 422.  Response message = Couldn't find ExternalAccount.

All non get requests have a corresponding ! version of the method. These methods will throw an error rather than swallow the error and return an object with the errors object populated. For example, the run and run! methods on CustomSignature.

Pagination

Evident.io API endpoints that return a collection of objects allows for paging and only returns a limited number of items at a time. The Evident.io SDK returns an ESP::PaginatedCollection object that provides methods for paginating through the collection. The methods with a ! suffix update the object, methods without the ! suffix return a new page object preserving the original object.

espsdk:004:0> alerts = ESP::Alert.where(report_id: 345)
espsdk:004:0> alerts.current_page_number # => "1"
espsdk:004:0> page2 = alerts.next_page
espsdk:004:0> alerts.current_page_number # => "1"
espsdk:004:0> page2.current_page_number # => "2"
espsdk:004:0> page2.previous_page!
espsdk:004:0> page2.current_page_number # => "1"
espsdk:004:0> alerts.last_page!
espsdk:004:0> alerts.current_page_number # => "25"
espsdk:004:0> page4 = alerts.page(4)
espsdk:004:0> alerts.current_page_number # => "25"
espsdk:004:0> page4.current_page_number # => "4"

See ActiveResource::PaginatedCollection for all the pagination methods available.

Associated Objects

Most of the objects in the Evident.io SDK have a corresponding API call associated with it. That means if you call an object's association, then that will make another API call. For example:

espsdk:004:0> external_account = ESP::ExternalAccount.find(3)
espsdk:004:0> organization = external_account.organization
espsdk:004:0> sub_organization = external_account.sub_organization
espsdk:004:0> team = external_account.team

The above code will make 4 calls to the Evident.io API. 1 each for the external account, organization, sub_organization and team. The JSON API Specification, which the Evident.io API tries to follow, provides a means for returning nested objects in a single call. With the SDK, that can be done by providing a comma separated string of the relations wanted in an +include+ option.

espsdk:004:0> external_account = ESP::ExternalAccount.find(3, include: 'organization,sub_orgnanization,team')
espsdk:004:0> external_account = ESP::ExternalAccount.where(id_eq: 3, include: 'organization,sub_organization,team')

With that call, organization, sub_organization and team will all come back in the response, and calling, external_account.organization, external_account.sub_organization and external_account.team, will not make another API call.

You can nest include requests with the dot property. For example, requesting external_account.team on an alert will expand the external_account property into a full External Account object, and will then expand the team property on that external account into a full Team object. Deep nesting is available as well. external_account.team.organization

alert = ESP::Alert.find(1, include: 'tags,external_account.team')
#=> <ESP::Alert:0x007fb82acd3298 @attributes={"id"=>"1", "type"=>"alerts"...}>

alerts = ESP::Alert.where(report_id: 4, include: 'tags,external_account.team')
#=> #<ActiveResource::PaginatedCollection:0x007fb82b0b54b0 @elements=[#<ESP::Alert:0x007fb82b0b1fb8 @attributes={"id"=>"1", "type"=>"alerts"...>

Most objects' find and where methods accept the +include+ option. Those methods that accept the +include+ option are documented with the available associations that are includable.

Filtering/Searching

For objects that implement where, parameters can be passed that will filter the results based on the search criteria specified. The criteria that can be specified depends on the object. Each object is documented whether it implements where or not, and if so, which attributes can be included in the search criteria.

Searching

The primary method of searching is by using what is known as predicates.

Predicates are used within Evident.io API search queries to determine what information to match. For instance, the cont predicate, when added to the name attribute, will check to see if `name`` contains a value using a wildcard query.

ESP::Signature.where(name_cont: 'dns')
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE '%dns%'`

Conditions on Relationships

The syntax for queries on an associated relationship is to just append the association name to the attribute:

ESP::Suppression.where(regions_code_eq: 'us_east_1')
#=> will return suppressions that have a region relationship `where code = 'us_east_1'`

Complex Filtering

Add multiple attributes and predicates to form complex queries:

ESP::Suppression.where(regions_code_start: 'us', created_by_email_eq: 'bob@mycompany.com', resource_not_null: '1')
#=> will return suppressions that have a region relationship `where code LIKE 'us%'` and created_by relationship `where email = 'bob@mycompany.com'` and `resource IS NOT NULL`

You can also change the combinator for complex queries from the default AND to OR by adding the m: 'or' parameter

ESP::Suppression.where(regions_code_start: 'us', created_by_email_eq: 'bob@mycompany.com', resource_not_null: '1', m: 'or')
#=> will return suppressions that have a region relationship `where code LIKE 'us%'` **OR** created_by relationship `where email = 'bob@mycompany.com'` **OR** `resource IS NOT NULL`

Bad Attributes

Please note: any attempt to use a predicate for an attribute that does not exist will return a 422 (Unprocessable Entity) response. For instance, this will not work:

ESP::Suppression.where(bad_attribute_eq: 'something')
#=> ActiveResource::ResourceInvalid: Failed.  Response code = 422.  Response message = Invalid search term bad_attribute_eq.

Also note: any attempt to use a predicate for an attribute that exists on the object, but is not a documented searchable attribute will silently fail and will be excluded from the search criteria.

Available Predicates

Below is a list of the available predicates and their opposites.

eq (equals)

The eq predicate returns all records where a field is exactly equal to a given value:

ESP::Suppression.where(regions_code_eq: 'us_east_1')
#=> will return suppressions that have a region relationship `where code = 'us_east_1'`

Opposite: not_eq

lt (less than)

The lt predicate returns all records where a field is less than a given value:

ESP::Report.where(created_at_lt: 1.hour.ago)
#=> will return reports `where created_at < '2015-11-11 16:25:30'`

Opposite: gt (greater than)

lteq (less than or equal to)

The lteq predicate returns all records where a field is less than or equal to a given value:

ESP::Report.where(created_at_lteq: 1.hour.ago)
#=> will return reports `where created_at <= '2015-11-11 16:25:30'`

Opposite: gteq (greater than or equal to)

in

The in predicate returns all records where a field is within a specified list:

ESP::Signature.where(risk_level_in: ['Low', 'Medium'])
#=> will return signatures `where risk_level IN ('Low', 'Medium')`

Opposite: not_in

cont (contains)

The cont predicate returns all records where a field contains a given value:

ESP::Signature.where(name_cont: 'dns')
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE '%dns%'`

Opposite: not_cont

Please note: This predicate is only available on attributes listed in the "Valid Matching Searchable Attributes"" section for each implemented where method.

cont_any (contains any)

The cont_any predicate returns all records where a field contains any of given values:

ESP::Signature.where(name_cont_any: ['dns', 'EC2'])
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE '%dns%' or name LIKE '%EC2%'`

Opposite: not_cont_any

Please note: This predicate is only available on attributes listed in the "Valid Matching Searchable Attributes"" section for each implemented where method.

start (starts with)

The start predicate returns all records where a field begins with a given value:

ESP::Signature.where(name_start: 'dns')
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE 'dns%'`

Opposite: not_start

Please note: This predicate is only available on attributes listed in the "Valid Matching Searchable Attributes"" section for each implemented where method.

end (ends with)

The end predicate returns all records where a field ends with a given value:

ESP::Signature.where(name_end: 'dns')
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE '%dns'`

Opposite: not_end

Please note: This predicate is only available on attributes listed in the "Valid Matching Searchable Attributes"" section for each implemented where method.

present

The present predicate returns all records where a field is present (not null and not a blank string).

ESP::Signature.where(identifier_present: '1')
#=> will return signatures `where identifier IS NOT NULL AND identifier != ''`

Opposite: blank

null

The null predicate returns all records where a field is null:

ESP::Signature.where(identifier_null: 1)
#=> will return signatures `where identifier IS NULL`

Opposite: not_null

Sorting

Lists can also be sorted by adding the sorts parameter with the field to sort by to the filter parameter.

ESP::Signature.where(name_cont: 'dns', sorts: 'risk_level desc')
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE '%dns%'` sorted by `risk_level` in descending order.

Lists can be sorted by multiple fields by specifying an ordered array.

ESP::Signature.where(name_cont: 'dns', sorts: ['risk_level desc', 'created_at'])
#=> will return signatures `where name LIKE '%dns%'` sorted by `risk_level` in descending order and then by `created_at` in ascending order.

Console

The Evident.io SDK gem also provides an IRB console you can use if not using it in a Rails app. Run it with esp console or use the shortcut esp c

Add External Account Script

The esp executable can also run a script that will create an external account and team for an already created sub organization that has the name 'AutoCreate'. The script can be run with the command esp add_external_account or the shortcut esp a.

To run this script you will need to install the aws-sdk gem.

 gem install aws-sdk

Additional information can be found in the help. esp add_external_account -h
