Wazuh Integration
Integration of AIR with Wazuh is possible via the feature called "Integrations".
When Wazuh's configuration file has the integration setting with specified RuleID, It runs a defined script. The defined python script sends the relevant information with a POST request to the AIR.

Steps to Integrate

Step 1: Create a Trigger for Wazuh

  • Visit the Webhooks page in Binalyze AIR,
  • Click the "+ New Webhook" button on the upper right corner,
  • Provide a self-explanatory name (examples: RDP Brute Force Trigger, Phishing Detected Trigger, etc.),
  • Select "Wazuh: Wazuh AIR Integration" as the parser for this webhook,
  • Select an Acquisition Profile when Wazuh activates this webhook,
  • Select the Ignore option or leave with its default value (defaults to 24 hours for recurrent alerts for a single endpoint),
  • Provide other settings such as Evidence Repository, CPU Limit, Compression & Encryption to use or let AIR configure them automatically based on the matching policy
  • Click the "Save" button,
  • Hover your mouse over the link below the Webhook name and double-click to copy (see below),

Step 2: Add the Integration Settings in Wazuh

Open the ossec.conf file with a preferred text editor and add the following line to the end of the file before closing the ossec_config. The name must be precisely custom-air. For detailed information, please see the Wazuh Documentation.
///reducted///
<integration>
<name>custom-air</name>
<hook_url>The Webhook URL copied in Step 1</hook_url>
<rule_id>The Rule ID you want to trigger AIR</rule_id>
<alert_format>json</alert_format>
</integration>
</ossec_config>

Step 3: Creating the scripts in Wazuh

  • Every time the relevant rule_id is triggered, a bash script named custom-air is executed. Create a file named custom-air in /var/ossec/integrations/ paste the following script. For detailed information, please refer to the Wazuh Documentation.
#!/bin/sh
WPYTHON_BIN="framework/python/bin/python3"
SCRIPT_PATH_NAME="$0"
DIR_NAME="$(cd $(dirname ${SCRIPT_PATH_NAME}); pwd -P)"
SCRIPT_NAME="$(basename ${SCRIPT_PATH_NAME})"
case ${DIR_NAME} in
*/active-response/bin | */wodles*)
if [ -z "${WAZUH_PATH}" ]; then
WAZUH_PATH="$(cd ${DIR_NAME}/../..; pwd)"
fi
PYTHON_SCRIPT="${DIR_NAME}/${SCRIPT_NAME}.py"
;;
*/bin)
if [ -z "${WAZUH_PATH}" ]; then
WAZUH_PATH="$(cd ${DIR_NAME}/..; pwd)"
fi
PYTHON_SCRIPT="${WAZUH_PATH}/framework/scripts/${SCRIPT_NAME}.py"
;;
*/integrations)
if [ -z "${WAZUH_PATH}" ]; then
WAZUH_PATH="$(cd ${DIR_NAME}/..; pwd)"
fi
PYTHON_SCRIPT="${DIR_NAME}/${SCRIPT_NAME}.py"
;;
esac
${WAZUH_PATH}/${WPYTHON_BIN} ${PYTHON_SCRIPT} "[email protected]"
  • Create a python script named custom-air.py /var/ossec/integrations/ and paste the following script. The script runs another python script and makes a request to the air server.

  • The scripts must be placed in /var/ossec/integrations, have the same name as indicated in the configuration block, contain execution permissions, and belong to the root user of the ossec group. Execute the following two commands:
#chmod 750 /var/ossec/integrations/custom-air
#chown root:ossec /var/ossec/integrations/custom-air
#chmod 750 /var/ossec/integrations/custom-air.py
#chown root:ossec /var/ossec/integrations/custom-air.py
