Dear Team,


I wanted an explanation on the cortex XDR services present on the Linux machine and their role. Needed to know each service  functionality mentioned in the below command section like pmd , analyzed , dypd and decryptor.json

 Name    PID         User              Status           Command
          pmd  20798         root             Running           /opt/traps/bin/pmd
    analyzerd  21027     cortexu+             Running           /opt/traps/analyzerd/analyzerd 109 111 113
         dypd  20999         root             Running           /opt/traps/bin/dypd -a  -- 99
         lted  20982     cortexu+             Running           /opt/traps/ltee/lted -type 2 -config ltee_decryptor.json

Hello @Venkatesh_Konar 


Thanks for reaching out on LiveCommunity!

Please find below the functionality of mentioned XDR services.

“Pmd” is the main agent daemon that spawns other agent processes.

"dypd" is the injection service used by the Cortex XDR agent. 

“analyzerd” is the service responsible for local analysis of threats e.g. analysis of ELF files..

“lted” is responsible for examining non ELF files to detect webshells.
