threat-actor-intelligence-server

A simple ReST server to lookup threat actors (by name, synonym or UUID) and returning the corresponding MISP galaxy information about the known threat actors.

Requirements

  • Python 3.6
  • Tornado

Installation

git clone https://github.com/MISP/threat-actor-intelligence-server
cd threat-actor-intelligence-server
git submodule init
git submodule update
pip install -r REQUIREMENTS

Starting the server

cd bin
python tai-server.py

By the default, the server is listening on TCP port 8889.

API and public API

The API is simple and can be queried on the /query entry point by POSTing a simple query in JSON format. The query format is composed of an name as key or an uuid as key. The output format is a JSON in the MISP standard galaxy format.

Query such as {"name":"APT34"} or {"name":"Sofacy"} does the search on the name or potential synonyms.

There is also a simple GET entry point /get/<UUID> entry point followed by the UUID of the threat-actor.

A public API is available at the following url https://www.misp-project.org/tai/ and can be queried to gather the latest information about threat-actors.

Example using curl

curl --silent -d '{"name":"APT34"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST https://www.misp-project.org/tai/query | jq .

    "description": "Since at least 2014, an Iranian threat group tracked by FireEye as APT34 has conducted reconnaissance aligned with the strategic interests of Iran. The group conducts operations primarily in the Middle East, targeting financial, government, energy, chemical, telecommunications and other industries. Repeated targeting of Middle Eastern financial, energy and government organizations leads FireEye to assess that those sectors are a primary concern of APT34. The use of infrastructure tied to Iranian operations, timing and alignment with the national interests of Iran also lead FireEye to assess that APT34 acts on behalf of the Iranian government.",

  "description": "We have investigated their intrusions since 2013 and have been battling them nonstop over the last year at several large telecommunications and technology companies. The determination of this China-based adversary is truly impressive: they are like a dog with a bone.\nHURRICANE PANDA’s preferred initial vector of compromise and persistence is a China Chopper webshell – a tiny and easily obfuscated 70 byte text file that consists of an ‘eval()’ command, which is then used to provide full command execution and file upload/download capabilities to the attackers. This script is typically uploaded to a web server via a SQL injection or WebDAV vulnerability, which is often trivial to uncover in a company with a large external web presence.\nOnce inside, the adversary immediately moves on to execution of a credential theft tool such as Mimikatz (repacked to avoid AV detection). If they are lucky to have caught an administrator who might be logged into that web server at the time, they will have gained domain administrator credentials and can now roam your network at will via ‘net use’ and ‘wmic’ commands executed through the webshell terminal.",
