Hi Shishir,

Good to have this community.

I would like to know if you can share, how you define black list and white list and how it is being validated by deepsight security analyst.

I'm not certain what you mean with this question however let me briefly define a blacklist and a whitelist:

Blacklist - A list of IPs, or URLs that are under suspicion and therefore should be denied connections to your protected network resources.

WhiteList - A list of known trusted or good IPs and URLs that you will always permit communications with.

As far as how things are being validated, I'm not certain the contest of the question could you please elaborate?

Hi Tim,

Our application SSIM downloads update from Deepsight and use that update for correlation in few security rules.

Now we are not able to fetch that data like black list IP from SSIM.

I want to explore that data from ssim or deepsight for further analysis.

Please find snap of one lookup table where it does not contain any ip or list but trigger incident when it detect blacklisted ip by deepsight.

How the data is handled by SSIM is less of a DeepSight question and more of a SSIM question.  I'd have to refer you to the SSIM community to find out more about this as I am not versed in the SSIM, only in the intelligence used to create the datafeeds.

As far as your datafeed no longer being available in SSIM, I beleive if you update your subscription you will received continuously updated data.

The SSIM does not publish the list of IP's updated from Deepsight in that lookup table since the content/list is always being updated it is all maintained in the SSIM database.  If you want to see details on the IP address triggered by Deepsight it will be highlighted RED in the alert/incident under the Events tab you can right click and select 'Watch list info' for more details.  Also below is a KB explaining how you can add Whitelist to exclude trusted IPs and how to add your own untrusted IPs that are not being flagged by Deepsight.
