Anomali Limo Miner Creation

Hello,

First, I am not a programmer, so please keep that in mind ;-) I would like to create a miner for the Anomali Limo TAXII feed. The Anomali documentation is not very good:

 

You can also get the benefits of Limo without STAXX. Simply:

This doesn't really explain much. If I go to: https://limo.anomali.com/taxii and authenticate, I get this back:

Thus, I am really not sure how I would use any of this information. I was expecting to see data with headers and such. Not only don't I get those, I don't see the feed names themselves as suggested in the Anomali documentation. Thus, I am really not sure how to proceed from here.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

@Jon-Irish,

 

you just have to create  a new TaxiiClient class based prototype and clone it into your engine as a working node.

 

To create a new TaxiiClient prototype you can use any other TaxiiClient prototype as the base. For example, you can use any from the "hailataxii" series.

Change the "discovery_service" and "collection" class configuration parameters to fit your need. In your case:

  • discovery_service = https://limo.anomali.com/api/v1/taxii/taxii-discovery-service/
  • collection: any from the following list:
    • Abuse_ch_Ransomware_IPs_F135
    • Abuse_ch_Ransomware_Domains_F136
    • DShield_Scanning_IPs_F150
    • Lehigh_Malwaredomains_F33
    • CyberCrime_F41
    • Emerging_Threats_C_C_Server_F31
    • Malware_Domain_List___Hotlist_F200
    • Phish_Tank_F107
    • Emerging_Threats___Compromised_F68
    • Blutmagie_TOR_Nodes_F209
    • Anomali_Weekly_Threat_Briefing_S1

(the list was captured today with the cabby command "taxii-collections --path https://limo.anomali.com/api/v1/taxii/collection_management/ --username guest --password guest")

Re: Anomali Limo Miner Creation

Thanks for the great reply! Is it possible to have more than one collection in a miner?

Re: Anomali Limo Miner Creation

I was able to get the "cabby"docker image working and I replicated your findings. Thanks for pointing this out to me! My only other question is, can I have mor ethan one collection in a data miner?

 

Thanks!

Re: Anomali Limo Miner Creation

Another thing that I am noticing is that I am not pulling any indicators. Here is the config for the poller:

 

minemeldlocal.anomali_limo_feed PROTOTYPE

 

 

MINER

EXPERIMENTAL

ABOUT minemeldlocal

Local prototype library managed via MineMeld WebUI

ABOUT minemeldlocal.anomali_limo_feed

Anomali Limo data feed

CLASS

minemeld.ft.taxii.TaxiiClient

INDICATOR TYPES

TAGS

CONFIG

age_out
  • default: last_seen+30d
  • sudden_death: false

collection Anomali_Weekly_Threat_Briefing_S1
discovery_service https://limo.anomali.com/api/v1/taxii/taxii-discovery-service/
password guest
source_name limo.anomali.com
username guest

 

If I then go to the Nodes view and look at the node, it shows it successfully polling, but no indicators. I must have done something wrong.

Hi @Jon-Irish,

 

yes, you're right. Something is wrong. But not on your end (neither on mine) but on Anomali's one.

 

Using Cabby (instead of MineMeld) to poll the indicators also rise an exception.

 

<ord guest --discovery https://limo.anomali.com/api/v1/taxii/taxii-discovery-service/ --collection Anomali_Weekly_Threat_Briefing_S1

I'll try later on to troubleshoot what's wrong in their API.

Thanks for the update @xhoms... It is good to know that it isn't something that I did wrong.
