How To Implement

You must install splunk GCP add-on. This search works with gcp:pubsub:message logs

Required field

  • _time
  • data.protoPayload.request.function.timeout
  • src
  • src_user
  • data.resource.labels.project_id
  • data.protoPayload.request.function.serviceAccountEmail
  • data.protoPayload.authorizationInfo{}.permission
  • data.protoPayload.request.location
  • http_user_agent

Kill Chain Phase

  • Lateral Movement

Known False Positives

Payload.request.function.timeout value can possibly be match with other functions or requests however the source user and target request account may indicate an attempt to move laterally accross acounts or projects
