Recent release features

Find Lateral Movement with MITRE BZAR

Corelight Sensors now ship with the MITRE BZAR package in the Core Collection, which detects lateral movement techniques in MITRE ATT&CK related to SMB and DCE-RPC traffic, such as indicators targeting Windows Admin Shares and Remote File Copy. It can also extract detection-related files to enable investigations of suspicious traffic.

Quickly investigate with Community ID

Community ID is an industry flow-identification standard that creates a common hash of the 5-tuple and appends it to Corelight’s conn.log so analysts can quickly investigate from a connection in Corelight. Access and pivot seamlessly across related logs using the community ID within your existing SIEM and correlated with existing security stack events.
