Listen to the soothing sounds of attacks and anomalies.

Build Status Go Report Card


The Signal Sciences web protection platform offers a rich API that enables limitless integrations and automation. Or, at least only limited by your imagination. As an example of this, sigsci-sounds is a utility to audibility monitor when Signal Sciences detects attack or anomaly events against your web site. You literally can listen to your site being attacked.

The utility is configurable so you can define which attacks or anomalies you want to hear.

Note: obviously you must be a Signal Sciences customer to make use of this utility.


  • Golang 1.7 or higher.
  • A Signal Sciences API account.


Be sure to have your GOPATH set properly.

If you have make on your system run make all to build the binary. Once built, you can run ./sigsci-sounds. Or you can run make run to run sigsci-sounds without building the binary. If you do not have make, You can run go build -i sigsci-sounds.go to build the binary.

Configure SigSci API Info

When accessing the Signal Sciences API you need to specify your credentials (email and password), corp name, and site name. You can do this via environment variables, example:

export SIGSCI_EMAIL=<your email>
export SIGSCI_PASSWORD=<your password>
export SIGSCI_CORP=<your corp name>
export SIGSCI_SITE=<site name of site to be monitored by sigsci-sounds>

Configure sigsci-sounds Themes

By default sigsci-sounds will use the theme file themes/sigsci-sounds-osx.conf. However, you can use a different theme by setting the SIGSCI_SOUNDS_CONFIG environment variable, e.g. export SIGSCI_SOUNDS_CONFIG=theme/star-trek-tos.conf.

Note: You can edit theme files and include your API information (email, password, corp, site), rather than setting those values as environment variables.


You can edit and create themes!

The theme file is JSON format. See one of the provided configuration files as an example.

To customize a theme you only need to edit the "Tags": [] section of the file. This section is a JSON array where each entry requires two fields: name and sound.

  • name is the actual tag "short name" you want to monitor. This can be a Signal Sciences default sytem tag or a custom tag.
  • sound is the path to the sound file you want to play for the specified tag name.
