Updating MineMeld Miner indicators via http/https API requests from external systems ?

Dear MineMeld community,

 

Can we add/remove indicators from a MineMeld Miner via http/https API?

 

We currently have a simple automation system for IP whitelisting:

 

External System sends an https request to an automation server with an IP address info and some another data:

 

http://AutoRequest.com/request?ip=10.1.1.1&start_date=01/01/2018&time_period=24

 

The automation server has an API to parse this request and add a new Line with all details to a locally stored text file. Also, server hosts this text file as an URL: https://AutoRequest.com/whitelist.txt

 

Every 5 minute local script checks the text file and removes IP with expired data (start date + time_period).

 

The EDL is configured with a source URL: https://AutoRequest/whitelist.txt  on the PaloAlto firewalls and a security policy allows access for these IPs from the list.

 

It`s pretty simple but makes our operation live easy.  We are thinking to migrate this solution to the MineMiled server. How can we configure the Minemeld to hold an API for external systems for updating Miner indicators with several fields (IP, start date, time_periond)? Is it possible? 

 

Currently, we use Minemeld in a standard way for keeping global white/black lists for Palo EDLs, where Miner is pulling URLs/IP from the external hosts.

 

Thank you so much for any ideas

Hi @AntonZakharov,

 

take a look at the article at https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/MineMeld-Articles/Using-MineMeld-as-an-Incident-Response-Platfo... where a use case for the LocalDB miner is documented.

 

The LocalDB miner exposes an API you can use to satisfy your need
