In this blog I will show how use bot IntelMQ and ELK stack together so that the feed from IntelMQ can be pushed into the ELK for analysis. I will not go into the details of architecture for either of these as they are beyond the scope of this blog. In the previous blog post, I have already illustrated how we can install IntelMQ in Ubuntu 20.04 system using sources and use apt command to download packages and install them.
In this blog, we will be using the api provided by the shadow server and obtain information. We will use the official API to pull data from the Shadow Server systems. Previously this has been delivered manually via email but it be manual process where we can configure the intelmq to fetch the email from the email server obtain the attachment and delete the file. But from my perspective, this seems ineffective and not the proper way to do it.
In this post we will be installing IntelMQ, IntelMQ API and IntelMQ Manager. We will be following the original guide provided by the developer. A point to note is, I have initially tried to install the software on LXC system unfortunately I have failed when installing the system on to that platform then after couple of tries I have found that it was quite impossible to install and bring back up the system.
