Introduction In Cortex XSOAR, indicators are a key part of the platform as they visualize the Indicators Of Compromise (IOC) of a security alert in the incident to the SOC analyst and can be used in automated analysis workflows to determine the incident outcome. If you have a Cortex XSOAR Threat Intelligence Management (TIM) license, … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Creating indicator relationships in automations
Introduction When you use the Cortex XSOAR API in your automations, playbooks or custom scripts, the first place you will start is the API documentation to see which API endpoints are available. But what if you cannot find an API Endpoint for the task you want to automate in the documentation? In this blog post … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Discovering undocumented API endpoints
Introduction When using the Cortex XSOAR API in your automations, playbooks or custom scripts, knowing which API endpoints are available and how to use them is key. In a previous blog post in this series, we showed you where you could find the API documentation in Cortex XSOAR. The documentation was available on the server … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Exploring the API using Swagger Editor
In this blog post we will cover why rogue subscriptions are problematic and revisit a solution published a couple of years ago on Microsoft's Tech Community. Finally, we will conclude with some hardening recommendations to restrict the creation and importation of Azure subscriptions.
Introduction Every automated task in Cortex XSOAR relies on executing commands from integrations or automations either in a playbook or directly in the incident war room or playground. But what if you wanted to incorporate a command or automation from Cortex XSOAR into your own custom scripts? For that you can use the API. In … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Execute Commands Using The API
Introduction When developing automations in Cortex XSOAR, you can use the Script Helper in the built-in Cortex XSOAR IDE to view all the scripts and commands available for automating tasks. When there is no script or command available for the specific task you want to automate, you can use the Cortex XSOAR API to automate … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Using The API In Automations
Managed Security Services provider NVISO, today announced it has become a Palo Alto Networks Cortex® XMDR Specialization partner.
Introduction The war room in Cortex XSOAR incidents allows a SOC analyst to do additional investigations by using any command available as an automation or integration command. It also contains the output of all tasks used in playbooks (if not in Quiet mode). In this blogpost we will show you how to format output of … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Tagging War Room Entries
Introduction Building detection is a complex task, especially with a constantly increasing amount of data sources. Keeping track of these data sources and their appropriate detection rules or avoiding duplicate detection rules covering the same techniques can give a hard time to detection engineers. For a SOC, it is crucial to have an good overview … Continue reading DeTT&CT : Mapping detection to MITRE ATT&CK
Introduction When developing the automated SOC workflows for the NVISO Managed SOC and the additional NITRO services on Cortex XSOAR, we have started to make use of automations to do complex tasks instead of playbooks. Automations have much better performances and, if your team has a decent level of Python skills, developing complex tasks in … Continue reading Cortex XSOAR Tips & Tricks – Execute Command Function
