After authenticating with the ThreatConnect Browser Extension for the first time, you must configure its settings via the Settings menu before you can use it to scan online resources.

  1. When the Settings menu is first displayed, the Intel Sources tab will be selected (Figure 1). On this tab, select the source(s) (i.e., Organizations, Communities, and Intelligence Sources) from which to retrieve information about potential Indicators and Groups. You must select at least one source in order to use the ThreatConnect Browser Extension.

    • Use the search bar at the top of the tab to filter sources in the Sources list.
    • Select All: Select this checkbox to select all sources in the Sources list.
  2. After selecting the desired source(s) on the Intel Sources tab, click the Objects tab (Figure 2). On this tab, select the objects (Indicators, Groups, or both) for which the ThreatConnect Browser Extension will scan an online resource. You must select at least one object in order to use the ThreatConnect Browser Extension.
    Important
    ThreatConnect’s Collective Analytics Layer (CAL™) must be enabled in your ThreatConnect instance and for your Organization to scan online resources for Groups. If CAL is not enabled, the Groups option will be disabled on the Objects tab.
