Description:

DetectionLabELK is the perfect lab to use if you would like to build effective detection capabilities. It has been designed with defenders in mind. Its primary purpose is to allow blueteams to quickly build a Windows domain that comes pre-loaded with security tooling and some best practices when it comes to system logging configurations. It can easily be modified to fit most needs or expanded to include additional hosts.

Use cases:

A popular use case for DetectionLabELK is when you consider adopting MITRE ATT&CK framework and would like to develop detections for its tactics. You can use DetectionLabELK to quickly run atomic tests, see what logs are being generated and compare it to your production environment. This way you can:

  • Validate that your production logging is working as expected.
  • Ensure that your SIEM is collecting the correct events.
  • Enhance alerts quality by reducing false positives and eliminating false negatives.
  • Minimize coverage gaps.

Requirements

  • 55GB+ of free disk space
  • 16GB+ of RAM
  • Vagrant 2.2.2 or newer
  • Virtualbox

Deployment Options

  1. Use Vagrant Cloud Boxes - ETA ~2 hours.

    • Install Vagrant on your system.
    • Install Packer on your system.
    • Install the Vagrant-Reload plugin by running the following command: vagrant plugin install vagrant-reload.
    • Download DetectionLabELK to your local machine by running git clone https://github.com/cyberdefenders/DetectionLabELK.git from command line OR download it directly via this link.
    • cd to "DetectionLabELK/Vagrant" and execute vagrant up.
  2. Build Boxes From Scratch - ETA ~5 hours.

    • Install Vagrant on your system.
    • Install Packer on your system.
    • Install "Vagrant-Reload" plugin by running the following command: vagrant plugin install vagrant-reload.
    • Download DetectionLabELK to your local machine by running git clone https://github.com/cyberdefenders/DetectionLabELK.git from command line OR download it directly via this link.
    • cd to "DetectionLabELK" base directory and build the lab by executing ./build.sh virtualbox (Mac & Linux) or ./build.ps1 virtualbox (Windows).

Troubleshooting:

  • To verify that building process completed successfully, ensure you are in DetectionLabELK/Vagrant directory and run vagrant status. The four machines (wef,dc,logger and win10) should be running. if one of the machines was not running, execute vagrant reload <host>. If you would like to pause the whole lab, execute vagrant suspend and resume it using vagrant resume.
  • Deployment logs will be present in the Vagrant folder as vagrant_up_<host>.log
