OSTrICa – Open Source Threat Intelligence Collector

OSTrICa stands for Open Source Threat Intelligence Collector and is an Open Source plugin-oriented framework to collect and visualize Threat Intelligence Information. Furthermore, OSTrICa is also the Italian word for oyster: that’s where the logo come from.
SOC analysts, incident responders, attack investigators or cyber-security analysts need to correlate IoCs (Indicator of Compromise), network traffic patterns and any other collected data in order to get a real advantage against cyber-enemies. This is where threat intelligence comes into play, but unfortunately, not all the companies have enough budget to spend on Threat Intelligence Platform and Programs (TIPP); this is the main motivation behind OSTrICa’s development.

OSTrICa - Open Source Threat Intelligence Collector

OSTrICa is a free and open source framework that allows everyone to automatically collect and visualize any sort of threat intelligence data harvested (IoCs), from open, internal and commercial sources using a plugin based architecture. The collected intelligence can be analysed by analysts but it can also be visualized in a graph format, suitable for link analysis. The visualized information can be filtered dynamically and can show, for example, connections between multiple malware based on remote connections, file names, mutex and so on so forth.
