MISP Instance

In general when talking about a network of inter-connected MISP servers, each server is a MISP instance. Whilst we have no strong feelings towards anyones naming schemes, as a rule of thumb try to have a scheme that makes everyday use easy when analysts need to talk about remote MISP instances.

The hostname used for the instance in this book is misp.local and we will henceforth refer to it either by name or as local MISP instance.

Example Organisations

As MISP is a platform to support information sharing, example organisations are often used within this book.

A set of users and organisations are used in the different examples.

The following two organisations are regularly used as example:

  • Setec Astronomy with UUID 58d38339-7b24-4386-b4b4-4c0f950d210f
  • Acme Finance with UUID 58d38326-eda8-443a-9fa8-4e12950d210f

Starting from MISP 2.4.71, the example organisations with the above mentioned UUID are black-listed to avoid
large distribution of sample events while testing a MISP instance. If you want to test your distribution, the
sample organisation black-listing can be removed in Administration/Manage Org Blacklists.

Example IOCs

As with the example organisations, we want to make this book as useful as possible by using real life examples.

The following IOC examples have been used:

  • Sirefef (aka ZeroAccess) Sample Event ID: #31337
  • WannaCry Sample Event ID: #42
  • Dridex Sample Event ID: #23
