How To Implement

You must install the AWS App for Splunk (version 5.1.0 or later) and Splunk Add-on for AWS (version 4.4.0 or later), then configure your AWS CloudTrail inputs. You must also install Cloud Infrastructure data model. Please also customize the container_implant_aws_detection_filter macro to filter out the false positives.
