SOCless - serverless security orchestration, automation and response

SOCless is a serverless framework built to help security teams easily automate their incident response and operations workflows.


SOCless uses the AWS Step Functions and AWS Lambda services to execute user-defined workflows. The workflows, called Playbooks, are defined as JSON objects and triggered by real-time alerts from data sources or AWS CloudWatch schedules.


  • Responds to real-time or scheduled events
  • Orchestrates existing security tools into workflows using AWS Lambda functions written in Python 3
  • Interact with humans as part of automated workflows and adapt to their responses
  • Static IP address that can be whitelisted to internal resources
  • Rapid automation development life-cycle courtesy of reusable, modular and shareable plugins
  • Infrastructure and response workflows deploy as code using The Serverless Framework
  • Serverless design has low cost, low operational overhead, and scales effortlessly
