🧐 About

The CISA Hunt and Incident Response Program (CHIRP) is a tool created to dynamically query Indicators of Compromise (IoCs) on hosts with a single package, outputting data in a JSON format for further analysis in a SIEM or other tool. CHIRP does not modify any system data.

🏁 Getting Started

We build and release CHIRP via Releases. However, if you wish to run with Python3.6+, follow these instructions.

You can also write new indicators or plugins for CHIRP.

Prerequisites

Python 3.6 or greater is required to run CHIRP with Python. If you need help installing Python in your environment, follow the instructions here

CHIRP must be run on a live machine, but it does not have to be network connected.

Installing

python3 -m pip install -e .

In our experience, yara-python comes with some other dependencies. You MAY have to install Visual Studio C++ 14.0 and the Windows 10 SDK, this can be retrieved with Visual Studio Community

🎈 Usage

From release

# defaults
.\chirp.exe -a AA21-008A

# with args
.\chirp.exe -a AA21-062A -p registry yara -t c:\\target_dir\\** -o chirp_result --non-interactive -vv

From python

# defaults
python3 chirp.py -a AA21-008A

# with args
python3 chirp.py -a AA21-062A -p registry yara -t c:\\target_dir\\** -o chirp_result --non-interactive -vv

           [+] Done! Your results can be found at Z:\README\output.

Non-interactive Mode

Non-interactive mode may be used by issuing the "--non-interactive" flag at runtime. Using this flag enables process completion without input. In addition, a non-zero status of 1 will be emitted at runtime completion if IoC's were discovered.

⛏️ Built Using

  • Python - Language
  • Nuitka - For compilation
  • evtx2json - For event log access
  • yara-python - Parses and runs yara rules
  • rich - Makes the CLI easier on the eyes
  • psutil - Provides an easy API for many OS functions
  • aiomp - Asynchronous multiprocessing
  • pyyaml - Allows YAML interpretation
