With the recent release of v 1.0.0 of MSTICPy we thought it was a good time to do an overview article. This is based on an article in the Azure Sentinel Technical Community blog but since that one focuses on MSTICPy’s use in Azure Sentinel and MSTICPy is ostensibly SIEM-agnostic we thought it would be good to do another version of it here.
The 1.4.2 release of MSTICPy includes several major features/updates:
If you’ve installed release 1.4.0 or 1.4.1, please upgrade to v1.4.2 —…
This release includes 3 new notebooklets: AccountSummary, IPAddressSummary and LogonSessionRarity.
It’s been a while since we updated any notebooklets but then three come along at once! For some background read the original announcement of notebooklets.
This release also integrates the notebooklets with MSTICPy’s pivot functions, so that you can call a notebook from a single-line pivot function. These functions are available in the Host, Account and IpAddress entities so far.
If you don’t have the notebooklets package (msticnb) installed, install it with pip.
pip install msticnb
MSTICnb depends on MSTICPy and will install this if you don’t have it installed.
(We skipped a 1.2.0 with a few last-minute fixes)
This release contains some interesting new features, two of which were contributed by community members Ryan Cobb and Julien Touche. These features are: two new data providers for Azure Resource Graph and Sumologic, and a DataViewer control for pandas dataframes.
The Azure Resource graph provider lets you query Azure resources using KQL queries. This works much like our other query providers offering both pre-defined queries in YAML and ad-hoc querying.
You can use this data connector to flexibly and quickly get details on deployed Azure resources within a subscription. It allows…
We recently released an update to MSTICPy that adds some cool new features as well as some minor fixes.
Warning — this release includes some potentially breaking changes since we have renamed several pivot functions to have shorter, friendlier names. Several Azure Sentinel query functions have shortened names.
Pivots are still a relatively new feature in MSTICPy and as such we are still working to improve and expand them, especially as we get feedback from users. …
MSTICPy has been around for nearly 2 and half years so we decided that it was time to bring it out of beta and let it roam free in the big wide world.
(This article is based on the earlier MSTICPy release candidate article but does contain some updates, so please scan through, even if you read the previous article).
The 1.0 release has some new features and some significant updates to existing features:
We’ve decided that it’s time to bring MSTICPy out of beta and let it fend for itself in the big wide world.
The 1.0 release has some significant features that we’ll be testing and would like you to try out:
Since this is currently a pre-release it won’t install with
pip install msticpy You’ll need to specify the version
We recently just released a new version of MSTICPy with a feature called Pivot functions.
Pivot functions have three main goals:
The pivot functionality exposes operations relevant to a particular entity as methods (or functions) of that entity. These operations include: data queries, threat intelligence lookups, other data lookups (such as geo-location, whois and domain resolution) as well as other local functions.
Here are a couple of examples showing calling different kinds of enrichment functions…
We’re pleased to announce the release of MSTICPy 0.8.8 (which should have been 0.8.5 but a few hiccups caused us to do some hotfixes before announcing)
This release has a few new cool features (plus the usual share of fixes):
We recently released 0.8.0 of MSTICPy. The significant features in the release are:
We’ve added two new simple widgets.
GetText is a simple wrapper around the ipywidgets Text widget. Why would you use this rather than the Text widget? …
