sandboxapi

Developed by InQuest Build Status Documentation Status Code Health Test Coverage PyPi Version

A minimal, consistent API for building integrations with malware sandboxes.

This library currently supports the following sandbox systems:

It provides at least the following methods for each sandbox:

  • is_available(): Check if the sandbox is operable and reachable; returns a boolean
  • analyze(handle, filename): Submit a file for analysis; returns an item_id
  • check(item_id): Check if analysis has completed for a file; returns a boolean
  • report(item_id, report_format='json'): Retrieve the report for a submitted file
  • score(report): Parse out and return an integer score from the report object

Some sandbox classes may have additional methods implemented. See inline documentation for more details.

Note that the value returned from the score method may be on the range 0-10, or 0-100, depending on the sandbox in question, so you should refer to the specific sandbox's documentation when interpreting this value.

Installation

Install through pip:

pip install sandboxapi

Supports Python 2.7+.

Usage

Basic usage is as follows:

import sys
import time
import pprint

from sandboxapi import cuckoo

# connect to the sandbox
sandbox = cuckoo.CuckooAPI('http://192.168.0.20:8090/')

# verify connectivity
if not sandbox.is_available():
    print("sandbox is down, exiting")
    sys.exit(1)

# submit a file
with open('myfile.exe', "rb") as handle:
    file_id = sandbox.analyze(handle, 'myfile.exe')
    print("file {f} submitted for analysis, id {i}".format(f=filename, i=file_id))

# wait for the analysis to complete
while not sandbox.check(file_id):
    print("not done yet, sleeping 10 seconds...")
    time.sleep(10)

# print the report
print("analysis complete. fetching report...")
report = sandbox.report(file_id)
pprint.pprint(report)
print("Score: {score}".format(score=sandbox.score(report)))

Since the library provides a consistent API, you can treat all sandoxes the same way:

import sys
import time
import pprint

from sandboxapi import cuckoo, fireeye, joe

# connect to the sandbox
sandboxes = [
    cuckoo.CuckooAPI('http://192.168.0.20:8090/'),
    fireeye.FireEyeAPI('myusername', 'mypassword', 'https://192.168.0.21', 'winxp-sp3'),
    joe.JoeAPI('mykey', 'https://jbxcloud.joesecurity.org/api', True)
]

for sandbox in sandboxes:
    # verify connectivity
    if not sandbox.is_available():
        print("sandbox is down, exiting")
        sys.exit(1)

    # submit a file
    with open('myfile.exe', "rb") as handle:
        file_id = sandbox.analyze(handle, 'myfile.exe')
        print("file {f} submitted for analysis, id {i}".format(f=filename, i=file_id))

    # wait for the analysis to complete
    while not sandbox.check(file_id):
        print("not done yet, sleeping 10 seconds...")
        time.sleep(10)

    # print the report
    print("analysis complete. fetching report...")
    report = sandbox.report(file_id)
    pprint.pprint(report)
    print("Score: {score}".format(score=sandbox.score(report)))

Cuckoo Sandbox

Constructor signature:

CuckooAPI(url, verify_ssl=False)

Example:

CuckooAPI('http://192.168.0.20:8090/')

This library attempts to support any Cuckoo-like API, including older 1.x installations (though those without a score won't be able to use the .score method), compatible forks like spender-sandbox and CAPE, and the latest 2.x Cuckoo releases. If you find a version that doesn't work, let us know.

There is an unofficial Cuckoo library written by @keithjjones with much more functionality. For more information on the Cuckoo API, see the Cuckoo API documentation.

FireEye AX

Constructor signature:

FireEyeAPI(username, password, url, profile, legacy_api=False, verify_ssl=True)

Example:

FireEyeAPI('myusername', 'mypassword', 'https://192.168.0.20', 'winxp-sp3')

By default, the FireEyeAPI class uses v1.2.0 of the FireEye API, which is available on v8.x FireEye AX series appliances. The v1.1.0 API, which is available on v7.x appliances, is also supported - just set legacy_api=True to use the older version.

There is some limited FireEye API documentation on their blog. For more information on FireEye's sandbox systems, see the AX Series product page. FireEye customers have access to more API documentation.

Joe Sandbox

Constructor signature:

JoeAPI(apikey, apiurl, accept_tac, timeout=None, verify_ssl=True, retries=3)

Example:

JoeAPI('mykey', 'https://jbxcloud.joesecurity.org/api', True)

There is an official Joe Sandbox library with much more functionality. This library is installed as a dependency of sandboxapi, and wrapped by the sandboxapi.joe.JoeSandbox class.

VMRay Analyzer

Constructor signature:

VMRayAPI(api_key, url='https://cloud.vmray.com', verify_ssl=True)

Example:

VMRayAPI('mykey')

VMRay customers have access to a Python library with much more functionality. Check your VMRay documentation for more details.

Falcon Sandbox

Constructor signature:

FalconAPI(key, url='https://www.reverse.it/api/v2', env=100)

Example:

FalconAPI('mykey')

This class only supports version 2.0+ of the Falcon API, which is available in version 8.0.0+ of the Falcon Sandbox.

There is an official Falcon library with much more functionality, that supports the current and older versions of the Falcon API. Note that the official library only supports Python 3.4+.
