Description

This search looks for network traffic identified as The Onion Router (TOR), a benign anonymity network which can be abused for a variety of nefarious purposes.

Macros

The SPL above uses the following Macros:

Note that tor_traffic_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
  • All_Traffic.app
  • All_Traffic.action
  • All_Traffic.src_ip
  • All_Traffic.dest_ip
  • All_Traffic.dest_port

How To Implement

In order to properly run this search, Splunk needs to ingest data from firewalls or other network control devices that mediate the traffic allowed into an environment. This is necessary so that the search can identify an ‘action’ taken on the traffic of interest. The search requires the Network_Traffic data model be populated.
