Analyze Adversary Tactics and Techniques Using the MITRE ATT&CK CTI Corpus

Description

MITRE ATT&CK is a globally-accessible knowledge base of adversary tactics and techniques based on real-world observations. The ATT&CK knowledge base is used as a foundation for the development of specific threat models and methodologies in the private sector, in government, and in the cybersecurity product and service community. Tools are provided to analyze adversary tactics and techniques, build incident metrics, and identify high level program gaps using the MITRE ATT&CK CTI Corpus.

What’s Inside The Tin

The following functions are implemented:

  • enterprise_attack: Enterprise Attack Taxonomy v2.0
  • fct_tactic: Make an ordered Tactics factor with optional better labelling
  • mobile_attack: Mobile Attack Taxonomy v2.0
  • pre_attack: Pre-Attack Taxonomy v2.0
  • read_events: Read in ATT&CK events from a file
  • tactics_f: Tactics factors (generally for sorting & pretty-printing)
  • tidy_attack: Combined ATT&CK Matricies Tactics, Techniques and Technique detail
  • validate_tactics: Validate Tactics strings against MITRE authoritative source
  • validate_technique_ids: Validate Technique IDs
  • validate_techniques: Validate Techniques strings against MITRE authoritative source

The following datasets are included:

  • enterprise_attack: Enterprise Attack Taxonomy v2.0
  • mobile_attack: Mobile Attack Taxonomy v2.0
  • pre_attack: Pre-Attack Taxonomy v2.0
  • tactics_f: Tactics factors (generally for sorting & pretty-printing)
  • tidy_attack: Combined ATT&CK Matricies Tactics, Techniques and Technique detail

Installation

install.packages("attckr", repos = "https://cinc.rud.is")
# or
remotes::install_git("https://git.rud.is/hrbrmstr/attckr.git")
