misp-graph is a tool to analyze a MISP XML export and generate graphs from the events and its attributes. The export format currently supported are dot files (Graphviz) and gexf file Graph Exchange XML Format. Graph files can then be used with Gephi or another tools supporting these file formats. misp-graph can be used directed with the REST API of MISP or using an XML dump.

A Sample Graph visualized with Gephi



    Usage: misp-graph.py

      -h, --help            show this help message and exit
      -d, --debug           debug messages on stderr
                            type of the record (default record is 'domain')
      -f FILENAME, --file=FILENAME
                            filename of the MISP XML file to read (default MISP
                            XML dump is 'malwg.xml')
      -c CENTER, --center=CENTER
                            center node (could be an event id or also a value of a
                            record) into a subgraph. By default, all events and
                            matching attributes are added to the graph.
      -r RADIUS, --radius=RADIUS
                            maximum distance between node
      -o OUTPUTFORMAT, --outputformat=OUTPUTFORMAT
                            format of the graph output dot (graphviz), gexf
                            (default format is dot)
      -n OUTFILENAME, --outfilename=OUTFILENAME
                            output filename (default is out.<format>)
      -u URL, --url=URL     url to access MISP
      -a AUTHKEY, --authkey=AUTHKEY
                            authentication key to access MISP

Use case(s)

If you have a specific event (e.g. from OSINT or from a vendor providing a large set of IOCs) and you would like to see the direct neighbors to this event sharing the same attributes. As example, you want to see the shared attributes from event 310 with the other event with a maximum distance of 2 hops:

misp-graph.py -o dot -c 310 -r 2 -n event310.dot

If you would like to make a quick visualization of your MISP export, there will be a file called out.dot containing the XML in dot format.

misp-graph -f yourdump.xml
