COVID-19 MISP Information Sharing Community

COVID-19 MISP is a MISP instance retrofitted for a COVID-19 information sharing community, focusing on two areas of sharing:

  • Medical information
  • Cyber threats related to / abusing COVID-19
  • Disinformation about COVID-19

The information sharing community has a low barrier of entry, everyone can contribute and use the data. By default, the information is classified as TLP:WHITE for broader distribution and usefulness.

Who is the target audience for this community ?

  • Anyone wanting to gain situational awareness in regards to the current COVID-19 situation
  • Security practitioners trying to fend off covid related attacks
  • Those wanting to share, collaborate, visualise, automate data
  • All data is contextualised as either medical or security related information to make filtering as easy and convenient as possible

Why use MISP for such a context?

  • We are obviously interested on a personal level, as is everyone
  • Information sharing is what we do anyway
  • The tools that we are building are expanding our capabilities for the future
  • Bridging different domains affected in different ways can reveal correlations

How to get access to the COVID-19 MISP

Access can be requested to CIRCL by sending an email to CIRCL. A self-registration is also available.


Public Feeds generated from COVID-19 MISP community

Two public feeds are automatically generated from COVID-19 MISP. A filtered feed with the sources being selected by the MISP project team and another with all IOCs shared in the covid-19 MISP community.

How are the public feeds generated

As the MISP API is quite versatile, the script to generate the public feeds is described below:

curl \
-d '{"returnFormat":"csv","tags":["pandemic:covid-19=\"cyber\""],"enforceWarninglist":1,"requested_attributes":["value","type","event_info"]}' \
-H "Authorization: [API KEY]" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-type: application/json" \
> /var/www/MISP/app/webroot/public/covid_misp_full_ioc_list.csv

chown www-data:www-data /var/www/MISP/app/webroot/public/covid_misp_full_ioc_list.csv

curl \
-d '{"returnFormat":"csv","org":["CIRCL"], "enforceWarninglist":1,"requested_attributes":["value","type","event_info"], "tags":["pandemic:covid-19=\"cyber\""]
}' \
-H "Authorization: [API KEY]" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-type: application/json" \
> /var/www/MISP/app/webroot/public/covid_misp_filtered_ioc_list.csv

curl \
-d '{"returnFormat":"csv","eventid":[262, 372, 269],"enforceWarninglist":1,"requested_attributes":["value","type","event_info"],"tags":["pandemic:covid-19=\"c
yber\""], "headerless": 1}' \
-H "Authorization: [API KEY]" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-type: application/json" \
>> /var/www/MISP/app/webroot/public/covid_misp_filtered_ioc_list.csv
