IntelMQ – A solution for IT security teams for collecting and processing security feeds using a message queuing protocol

IntelMQ is a solution for IT security teams (CERTs, CSIRTs, abuse departments,…) for collecting and processing security feeds (such as log files) using a message queuing protocol. It’s a community driven initiative called IHAP (Incident Handling Automation Project) which was conceptually designed by European CERTs/CSIRTs during several InfoSec events. Its main goal is to give to incident responders an easy way to collect & process threat intelligence thus improving the incident handling processes of CERTs.

IntelMQ’s design was influenced by AbuseHelper , however it was re-written from scratch and aims at:

Reduce the complexity of system administration

Reduce the complexity of writing new bots for new data feeds

Reduce the probability of events lost in all process with persistence functionality (even system crash)

Use and improve the existing Data Harmonization Ontology

Use JSON format for all messages

Integration of the existing tools (AbuseHelper, CIF)

Provide easy way to store data into Log Collectors like ElasticSearch, Splunk, databases (such as PostgreSQL)

Provide easy way to create your own black-lists

Provide easy communication with other systems via HTTP RESTFUL API

It follows the following basic meta-guidelines:

Don’t break simplicity – KISS

Keep it open source – forever

Strive for perfection while keeping a deadline

Reduce complexity/avoid feature bloat

Embrace unit testing

Code readability: test with unexperienced programmers

Communicate clearly
