OpenCTI is an open source platform allowing organizations to manage their cyber threat intelligence knowledge and observables. It has been created in order to structure, store, organize and visualize technical and non-technical information about cyber threats.
The structuration of the data is performed using a knowledge schema based on the STIX2 standards. It has been designed as a modern web application including a GraphQL API and an UX oriented frontend. Also, OpenCTI can be integrated with other tools and applications such as MISP, TheHive, MITRE ATT&CK, etc.
The goal is to create a comprehensive tool allowing users to capitalize technical (such as TTPs and observables) and non-technical information (such as suggested attribution, victimology etc.) while linking each piece of information to its primary source (a report, a MISP event, etc.), with features such as links between each information, first and last seen dates, levels of confidence, etc. The tool is able to use the MITRE ATT&CK framework (through a dedicated connector) to help structure the data. The user can also choose to implement their own datasets.
Once data has been capitalized and processed by the analysts within OpenCTI, new relations may be inferred from existing ones to facilitate the understanding and the representation of this information. This allows the user to extract and leverage meaningful knowledge from the raw data.
OpenCTI not only allows imports but also exports of data under different formats (CSV, STIX2 bundles, etc.). Connectors are currently developed to accelerate interactions between the tool and other platforms.
Documentation and demonstration
If you want to know more on OpenCTI, you can read the documentation on the tool. If you wish to discover how the OpenCTI platform is working, a demonstration instance is available and open to everyone. This instance is reset every night and is based on reference data maintained by the OpenCTI developers.
All you need to install the OpenCTI platform can be found in the official documentation. For installation, you can:
Code of Conduct
Read our contributing guide to learn about our development process, how to propose bugfixes and improvements, and how to build and test your changes to OpenCTI.
Beginner friendly issues
To help you get you familiar with our contribution process, we have a list of beginner friendly issues which are fairly easy to implement. This is a great place to get started.
If you want to actively help OpenCTI, we created a dedicated documentation about the deployment of a development environement and how to start the source code modification.
Status & bugs
Currently OpenCTI is under heavy development, if you wish to report bugs or ask for new features, you can directly use the Github issues module.
GDPR and the OpenCTI OpenStreetMap server
In order to provide OpenCTI users with cartography features, the platform uses a dedicated OpenStreetMap server (https://map.opencti.io). To monitor usage and adapt services performances, Luatix collects access log to this server (including IP addresses).
By using this server, you authorize Luatix to collect this information. Otherwise, you are free to deploy your own OpenStreetMap server and modify the platform configuration accordingly.
If you have started using the Luatix server and change your mind, you have the right to access, limit, rectify, erase and receive your data. To exercise your rights, please send your request to email@example.com.
