Macros

The SPL above uses the following Macros:

Note that gcp_kubernetes_cluster_scan_detection_filter is a empty macro by default. It allows the user to filter out any results (false positives) without editing the SPL.

Required field

  • _time

How To Implement

You must install the GCP App for Splunk (version 2.0.0 or later), then configure stackdriver and set a Pub/Sub subscription to be imported to Splunk. You must also install Cloud Infrastructure data model.Customize the macro kubernetes_gcp_scan_fingerprint_attack_detection to filter out FPs.

Known False Positives

Not all unauthenticated requests are malicious, but frequency, User Agent and source IPs will provide context.
