MISP ansible role

Ansible role to setup MISP, Malware Information Sharing Platform & Threat Sharing


Requirements & Dependencies


It was tested on the following versions:

  • 2.0
  • 2.2
  • 2.3
  • 2.4
  • 2.5

Operating systems

Tested on Ubuntu 20.04, 22.04 and centos 8-Stream

Example Playbook

Just include this role in your list. For example

- hosts: all
    - juju4.MISP

default admin credentials (admin@admin.test / admin)


Nothing specific for now.

Continuous integration

This role has a travis basic test (for github), more advanced with kitchen and also a Vagrantfile (test/vagrant). Default kitchen config (.kitchen.yml) is lxd-based, while (.kitchen.vagrant.yml) is vagrant/virtualbox based.

Once you ensured all necessary roles are present, You can test with:

$ gem install kitchen-ansible kitchen-lxd_cli kitchen-sync kitchen-vagrant
$ cd /path/to/roles/juju4.MISP
$ kitchen verify
$ kitchen login
$ KITCHEN_YAML=".kitchen.vagrant.yml" kitchen verify


$ cd /path/to/roles/juju4.MISP/test/vagrant
$ vagrant up
$ vagrant ssh

Role has also a packer config which allows to create image for virtualbox, vmware, eventually digitalocean, lxc and others. When building it, it's advise to do it outside of roles directory as all the directory is upload to the box during building and it's currently not possible to exclude packer directory from it (hashicorp/packer#1811)

$ cd /path/to/packer-build
$ cp -Rd /path/to/juju4.MISP/packer .
## update packer-*.json with your current absolute ansible role path for the main role
## you can add additional role dependencies inside
$ cd packer
$ packer build packer-*.json
$ packer build -only=virtualbox-iso packer-*.json
## if you want to enable extra log
$ PACKER_LOG_PATH="packerlog.txt" PACKER_LOG=1 packer build packer-*.json
## for digitalocean build, you need to export TOKEN in environment.
##  update json config on your setup and region.
$ export DO_TOKEN=xxx
$ packer build -only=digitalocean packer-*.json
## for Azure
$ . ~/.azure/credentials
$ packer build azure-packer-centos7.json
$ packer build -var-file=variables.json azure-packer-centos7.json

Troubleshooting & Known issues


$ tail /var/log/apache2/misp.*
$ tail /var/www/MISP/app/tmp/logs/*.log
$ cd /var/www/MISP/app/Console && ./cake CakeResque.CakeResque tail

Known bugs

  • in /var/www/MISP/app/tmp/logs/error.log Error: [MissingTableException] Table logs for model Log was not found in datasource default. check misp database exists in mysql and is filled

  • MISP is made to run once unlike kitchen verify. If repeated, this test will fail.

  • if using privileged docker and a host with mysql, you might have the following issue

mysqld[29176]: /usr/sbin/mysqld: error while loading shared libraries: cannot stat shared object: Permission denied


  • docker and redis can have issue too and it might be necessary to edit systemd config on xenial see task 'docker redis workaround ???'

  • CI failing sometimes on Serialization failure: 1213 Deadlock found when trying to get lock; try restarting transaction. Seems related to Issue 5004 - Open

  • Ubuntu 22.04 seems unsupported as php8.1 and app/composer.json requires php >=7.2.0,<8.0.0

  • Error: Database connection \"Mysql\" is missing, or could not be created. can be cause if multiple php versions are present and wrong version is called from cli.

  • PHP Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: Return value of Symfony\\Component\\Process\\Process::close() must be of the type int, null returned in phar:///usr/local/bin/composer/vendor/symfony/process/Process.php:1466 (rhel/rockylinux8 and 9): root cause not identified, possibly container/docker related as only failing in molecule/docker and not bare github-hosted images.
