We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of MISP v2.4.171 with a long list of fixes, major STIX 2 improvements and an overhaul over the dashboard widget toolkit.
In order to support communities’ need to monitor ongoing trends, community growth and sharing activities in general, we’ve added and reworked a host of dashboard widgets.
A large focus of the improvements was making the widgets more configurable, especially in terms of being able to create dashboards showing individual data per groups of organisations. Groupings happen on the metadata of organisations, such as country, sector or the adaptable “type” field, allowing administrators to lump organisations into buckets based on commonalities in their community, such as membership status, sub-groups, etc.
Additionally time range definitions have been added for a host of the new and reworked widgets, allowing to see changes in the current month, past x days or the current year.
New widgets include:
- A new, filterable organisation evolution line-chart widget
- World map showing country representation of the given community
- A ticker showing the latest Users being enrolled in the system
- A ticker showing the latest organisations being enrolled in the system
- List of UI login counts for the configured timeframe
- List of UI authentications for the configured timeframe
- Published event line-chart
- Contributing organisation and user top lists (the latter requires the enabling of a security setting)
- Filterable trending attribute values widget
- Work has begun on a larger rework allowing the creation of filtered paths in workflows, allowing the workflow creator to temporarily restrict the data in individual paths based on custom, configurable filtering.
- This will further allow administrators to configure workflow execution paths that only trigger on more refined subsets of the data, rather than on anything passing through
- As always, workflows are still heavily a work in progress and are becoming tighter integrated with the core MISP functionalities with each release.
STIX 2.1 and TAXII integration improvements
- We would like to thank all users reporting unexpected misalignments in the STIX 2.1 conversion, we’re striving for a 100% coverage of the standard and at times removing the ambiguity created by such a large standard can be difficult to catch until we see those edge cases actually used by the various implementations.
- We appreciate the submission of any (sanitised) STIX 2.1 samples that cause unwanted results when ingested in MISP or any (sanitised) MISP events that cause incorrect or inconsistently mapped STIX 2.1 to be generated
- This release addresses a host of the bugs and misalignments reported, thanks to the tireless work of @chrisr3d
- TAXII integration is still in its infancy and currently only supporting a subset of tested target tools. Please let us know about anything that doesn’t work for you or if you have (successfully or unsuccessfully) integrated a taxii server with MISP using the new feature.
- A long list of fixes affecting:
- the workflows
- the event index search, including the ability to search for attributes via performant full string searches
- STIX 2.1
