Amsterdam

Introduction

Amsterdam is SELKS and Docker using Compose. The result of Amsterdam is a set of containers providing a complete Suricata IDS/NSM ecosystem:

The ELK stack is created using the official docker images. Communication between logstash and suricata is done via a share directory (from the host). The same applies to scirius and suricata where the /etc/suricata/rules directory is shared.

Installation

Generic

You can install amsterdam from the source directory by running ::

sudo python setup.py install

Or you can use pip to install latest released version ::

sudo pip install amsterdam

Debian

You need to install Docker. On Debian ::

sudo apt-get install docker.io docker-compose python-pip python-docker sudo pip install amsterdam

Ubuntu

On Ubuntu, you can run ::

sudo apt-get install docker.io python-pip sudo pip install amsterdam

Usage

To sniff the wlan0 interface and store data and config in the ams directory, you can run ::

amsterdam -d ams -i wlan0 setup amsterdam -d ams start

As of now the start command will take really long on first run as it will fetch from Docker hub all the necessary images and build some custom containers.

Subsequent run should take less than 1 minute.

You can then connect to:

  • https://localhost/ on scirius with scirius/scirius as login/password
  • https://localhost/kibana/ on kibana
  • https://localhost/evebox/ on evebox

The HTTPS server is accessible from outside so you can connect to IP or hostname from there. So don't forget to change the default password.

To stop the amsterdam instance, run ::

amsterdam -d ams stop

To remove an amsterdam instance in directory hacklu, run ::

amsterdam -d ~/builds/amsterdam/hacklu/ rm

and remove the data directory if you want to delete data.

Updating

Updating amsterdam

For installation done via setup.py, you can just update the source code and rerun the installation procedure ::

git pull sudo python setup.py install

For installation done via pip, one can run ::

pip install --upgrade --no-deps amsterdam

Updating an instance

When code is updated (new suricata package or new ELK versions), you can run (supposing your suricata listen on eth0) ::

amsterdam -d ams -i eth0 update

Then, you can restart the services ::

amsterdam -d ams restart

To do a complete update including Docker recipes and configuration files ::

amsterdam -d ams -f -i eth0 update

Tuning and coding

The configuration are stored in the config directory. For now only scirius, logstash and suricata are configured that way.

Running Scirius from latest git

To do so, simply edit docker-compose.yml in the data directory and uncomment and set the path to the scirius source tree. You will also need to copy the local_settings.py in config/scirius directory to in scirius subdirectory of your scirius source.

Once done, you can restart the services ::

amsterdam -d ams restart

Run a migration inside the container ::

docker exec ams_scirius_1 python /opt/selks/scirius/manage.py migrate

Backup

Backups in the scirius container are shared with the host. /var/backups directory is shared in $basepath/backups on the host.

To start a backup, run ::

docker exec ams_scirius_1 python /opt/selks/scirius/manage.py scbackup

To restore a backup and erase all your data, you can run ::

docker exec ams_scirius_1 python /opt/selks/scirius/manage.py screstore docker exec ams_scirius_1 python /opt/selks/scirius/manage.py migrate

This will restore the latest backup. To choose another backup, indicate a backup filename as first argument. To get list of available backup, use ::

docker exec ams_scirius_1 python /opt/selks/scirius/manage.py listbackups

You can not restore a backup to a scirius which is older than the one where the backup has been done.
