Article Summary

Minimum Role: Organization role of Standard User (for configuring and using the ThreatConnect Browser Extension to scan online resources and import potential Indicators into ThreatConnect); Organization role of Read Only User (for configuring and using the ThreatConnect Browser Extension to scan online resources only)

Prerequisites: A ThreatConnect instance with version 6.7 or newer installed (for leveraging CAL NLP when scanning for Groups); CAL enabled on your ThreatConnect instance and for your Organization (for scanning online resources for Groups, viewing CAL data for scan results, and leveraging CAL NLP when scanning for Groups); a supported web browser (Chrome™, Firefox®, or Microsoft Edge™); an Indicator Limit greater than zero (for importing data into an Organization, Community, or Source from the ThreatConnect Browser Extension)

With the ThreatConnect® Browser Extension, you can scan online resources, such as static and dynamic webpages, social media platforms, email messages, and even ThreatConnect itself, for potential Indicators or Groups. When scanning an online resource for Groups, the ThreatConnect Browser Extension will leverage the natural-language processing (NLP) capabilities of ThreatConnect’s Collective Analytics Layer (CAL™) to search for text that is indicative of a MITRE ATT&CK® Technique.

While reviewing scan results in the ThreatConnect Browser Extension, you can view ThreatConnect and CAL data for each potential Indicator or Group found during a scan. You can also import potential Indicators found during a scan directly into ThreatConnect and associate them with an existing or newly created Group.
