Security Onion Hybrid Hunter 1.1.4 - Alpha 4 Available for Testing!

In 2018, we started working on the next major version of Security Onion, code-named Hybrid Hunter:

We're excited to announce that Hybrid Hunter 1.1.4 is now available for testing and is considered our ALPHA 4 release!

This is our last planned alpha release for Hybrid Hunter.  If all goes according to plan, our next Hybrid Hunter release should be Beta!

Major Highlights in this Release

  • Added new in-house auth method Security Onion Auth.
  • Web user creation is done via the browser now instead of so-user-add.
  • New Logstash pipeline setup. Now uses multiple pipelines.
  • New Master + Search node type and well as a Heavy Node type in the install.
  • Change all nodes to point to the docker registry on the Master. This cuts down on the calls to dockerhub.
  • Zeek 3.0.1
  • Elastic 6.8.6
  • New SO Start | Stop | Restart scripts for all components (eg. so-playbook-restart).
  • BPF support for Suricata (NIDS), Steno (PCAP) & Zeek (docs).
  • Updated Domain Stats & Frequency Server containers to Python3 & created new Salt states for them.
  • Added so-status script which gives an easy to read look at container status.
  • Manage threshold.conf for Suricata using the thresholding pillar (docs).
  • The ISO now includes all the docker containers for faster install speeds.
  • You now set the password for the onion account during the iso install. This account is temporary and will be removed after so-setup.
  • Updated Helix parsers for better compatibility.
  • Updated telegraf docker to include curl and jq.
  • CVE-2020-0601 Zeek Detection Script.
  • ISO Install now prompts you to create a password for the onion user during imaging. This account gets disabled during setup.

Lots of love went into this release!

Special thanks to all our folks working so hard to make this release happen!
