Digital Shadow Plugin for Threat Exchange

This document explains how to configure Digital Shadow with the Threat Exchange module of the Netskope Cloud Exchange platform. This integration allows for pulling URLs (phishing-site-alert, impersonating-subdomain-alert and impersonating-domain-alert) from Digital Shadow to Netskope.

Prerequisites

To complete this configuration, you need:

  • A Netskope Tenant (or multiple, for example, production and development/test instances).

  • A Secure Web Gateway subscription for URL sharing.

  • A Netskope Cloud Exchange tenant with the Threat Exchange module already configured.

  • A Digital Shadow instance with the Elevate or Extend packages. Reach out to their Digital Shadow representative and ask them for API credentials (all keys granted as part of Elevate/Extend will have the required permissions).

    The API key will be a 6-character letter/number combination (ex: ABCD1E). The API secret will be a 32-character letter/number combination (ex: ABCDEF12GHIJKL345MNO6PQRSTUVWXYZ.

  • Connectivity to the following host: https://api.searchlight.app/.

Workflow
  1. Create a custom File Profile.

  2. Create a Malware Detection Profile.

  3. Create a Real-time Protection Policy.

  4. Create Digital Shadow credentials.

  5. Configure the Digital Shadow Plugin.

  6. Configure sharing between Netskope and Digital Shadow.

  7. Validate the Digital Shadow Plugin.

  3. Enter a temporary value in the text field. Netskope does not support progressing without having a value in this field, and recommends entering a string of 64 characters that consists of the character f. For example, ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff. This will have a very low possibility of matching a valid file format.

  2. Click Add Sharing Configuration, and in the Source Configuration dropdown list, select Digital Shadow.

    image7.png
  3. Select a Business Rule, and then select Netskope for the Destination Configuration. Sharing configurations are unidirectional. data obtained from one plugin is shared with another plugin. To achieve bi- or multi-directional sharing, configure each separately.

    image9.png
  4. Select a Target. Each plugin will have a different target or destination for the IoC.

  5. Some systems will support the IoC only to be used to match for certain endpoint OS (Windows, Mac, Linux).

  6. Click Save.

  7. Repeat steps 2-5, but select Netskope as the Source Configuration and Digital Shadow as the Destination Configuration.

  8. Click Save.

Adding a new sharing configuration on the active source poll will share the existing IoCs of the configuration to the destination configuration. Whenever a new sharing configuration is built, all the active IoCs will also be considered for sharing if they match the source/destination combination.

Note

Plugins that do not have API for ingesting data cannot receive threat data. This is true of the installed plugin API Source, which provides a bucket associated with an API endpoint for remote 3rd-party systems to push data to. Once a Sharing policy has been added, it takes effect.

After a sharing configuration has been created, the sharing table will show the rule being invoked, the source system providing the potential IoC matches, the destination system that will receive matching IoC, and the target applicable to that rule. Multiple Sharing configurations can be made to support mapping certain IoC to multiple targets even on the system destination system.

Modify, Test, or Delete a Sharing Configuration

Each configuration supports 3 actions:

image10.png
  • Edit the rule by clicking on the pencil icon.

  • Test the rule by clicking on the synchronization icon. This tests how many IoC will actually be sent to the destination system based on the timeframe and the rule.

  • Delete the rule by clicking on the garbage can icon.

Based on the Plugin configuration, Indicators will pull from Digital Shadow. Go to Threat Exchange > Threat IoCs to view the received IoCs.
