ThreatIngestor  : Extract & Aggregate Threat Intelligence

ThreatIngestor is an extendable tool to extract and aggregate IOCs from threat feeds. Integrates out-of-the-box with ThreatKB and MISP, and can fit seamlessly into any existing worflow with SQS, Beanstalk, and custom plugins.


It can be configured to watch Twitter, RSS feeds, or other sources, extract meaningful information such as malicious IPs/domains and YARA signatures, and send that information to another system for analysis.

It requires Python 3.6+, with development headers.

Install ThreatIngestor from PyPI:

Install optional dependencies for using some plugins, as needed:

Create a new config.yml file, and configure each source and operator module you want to use. (See config.example.yml for layout.) Then run the script:

threatingestor config.yml

By default, it will run forever, polling each configured source every 15 minutes.

ThreatIngestor uses a plugin architecture with “source” (input) and “operator” (output) plugins. The currently supported integrations are:

Threat Intel Sources

Looking for some threat intel sources to get started? InQuest has a Twitter List with several accounts that post C2 domains and IPs: Note that you will need to apply for a Twitter developer account to use the ThreatIngestor Twitter Source. Take a look at config.example.yml to see how to set this list up as a source.

For quicker setup, RSS feeds can be a great source of intelligence. Check out this example RSS config file for a few pre-configured security blogs.
