Extract and aggregate IOCs from threat feeds.

Project description

Developed by InQuest Build Status Documentation Status Code Health Test Coverage PyPi Version

An extendable tool to extract and aggregate IOCs from threat feeds.

Integrates out-of-the-box with ThreatKB and MISP, and can fit seamlessly into any existing worflow with SQS, Beanstalk, and custom plugins.


ThreatIngestor can be configured to watch Twitter, RSS feeds, or other sources, extract meaningful information such as malicious IPs/domains and YARA signatures, and send that information to another system for analysis.

Try it out now with this quick walkthrough, or see more ThreatIngestor walkthroughs on the InQuest blog.


ThreatIngestor requires Python 3.6+, with development headers.

Install ThreatIngestor from PyPI:

pip install threatingestor

Install optional dependencies for using some plugins, as needed:

pip install threatingestor[all]

View the full installation instructions for more information.


Create a new config.yml file, and configure each source and operator module you want to use. (See config.example.yml for layout.) Then run the script:

threatingestor config.yml

By default, it will run forever, polling each configured source every 15 minutes.
