MISP Docker

The files in this repository are used to create a Docker container running a MISP ("Malware Information Sharing Platform") instance.

I rewrote the Docker file to split the components in multiple containers (which is more in the philosophy of Docker). Therefore there is no longer a Dockerfile in the root directory.

The MISP container needs at least a MySQL container to store the data. By default it listen to port 80. I highly recommend to serve it behind a NGinx or Apache reverse proxy.

The build is based on Ubuntu and will install all the required components. The following configuration steps are performed automatically:

  • Reconfiguration of the base URL in config.php
  • Generation of a new salt in config.php
  • Generation of a self-signed certificate
  • Optimization of the PHP environment (php.ini) to match the MISP recommended values
  • Creation of the MySQL database
  • Generation of the admin PGP key

Optional NGINX config

Included is an optional Docker Compose file 'docker-compose-nginx.yml' to spin up a reverse proxy to sit in front of MISP.


  • add your ".crt" and ".key" files to the ./misp-proxy/ssl folder If not implementing SSL (not recommended) then simply comment out the appropriate lines in the "./misp-proxy/default.conf" file.
  • Update "server_name" in default.conf file (will implement ENVIRONMENT VARIABLE in the future)

Building your image

Fetch files

$ git clone
$ cd misp-docker

Fix your environment

Edit the docker-compose.yml and change the following environment variables:

  • Changed the volumes to match your local filesystem

Build the containers

$ docker-compose build
$ docker-compose -f docker-compose-nginx.yml build

Run containers

$ docker-compose up
$ docker-compose -f docker-compose-nginx.yml up
You can’t perform that action at this time.
