IntelMQ is a solution for IT security teams for collecting and processing security feeds using a message queuing protocol.

Project description

IntelMQ

Build Status codecov.io

IntelMQ is a solution for IT security teams (CERTs & CSIRTs, SOCs, abuse departments, etc.) for collecting and processing security feeds (such as log files) using a message queuing protocol. It’s a community driven initiative called IHAP (Incident Handling Automation Project) which was conceptually designed by European CERTs/CSIRTs during several InfoSec events. Its main goal is to give to incident responders an easy way to collect & process threat intelligence thus improving the incident handling processes of CERTs.

Several pieces of software are evolved around IntelMQ. For an overview, look at the Ecosystem document.

IntelMQ can be used for - automated incident handling - situational awareness - automated notifications - as data collector for other tools - etc.

IntelMQ’s design was influenced by AbuseHelper however it was re-written from scratch and aims at:

  • Reducing the complexity of system administration
  • Reducing the complexity of writing new bots for new data feeds
  • Reducing the probability of events lost in all process with persistence functionality (even system crash)
  • Use and improve the existing Data Harmonization Ontology
  • Use JSON format for all messages
  • Provide easy way to store data into Log Collectors like ElasticSearch, Splunk, databases (such as PostgreSQL)
  • Provide easy way to create your own black-lists
  • Provide easy communication with other systems via HTTP RESTful API

It follows the following basic meta-guidelines:

  • Don’t break simplicity - KISS
  • Keep it open source - forever
  • Strive for perfection while keeping a deadline
  • Reduce complexity/avoid feature bloat
  • Embrace unit testing
  • Code readability: test with unexperienced programmers
  • Communicate clearly
