Not long ago, the MISP project announced the ability to export NIDS rules created from events/indicators.

We can leverage this functionality by quickly and easily setting up an automated mechanism to pull NIDS rules from a MISP instance and add them to our local rules for Security Onion. To do so, we just need to follow the simple steps below:


Please keep in mind we do not officially this integration, so installation is at your own risk.


Clone the repo:
git clone https://github.com/weslambert/securityonion-misp

Run the setup script:
sudo securityonion-misp/setup-misp

Update rules (if desired):
sudo rule-update

Confirm rules in place:
grep -i misp /etc/nsm/rules/downloaded.rules

You should now be up and running!
MISP rules will be downloaded via cron-job at the interval specified in /etc/cron.d/download-misp.
