Dive into DSL: Digital Response Analysis with Elasticsearch - Brian Marks, Andrea Sancho Silgado Derbycon 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Dive into DSL: Digital Response Analysis with Elasticsearch
Brian Marks, Andrea Sancho Silgado
Derbycon 2016

In this talk we will take a deep dive into the Elasticsearch DSL using python and how you can use it to go beyond the simple searches you may have been using in Kibana. We will demonstrate how Elasticsearch can be used to speed up and automate your DFIR investigations by grouping multiple queries of artifacts into a ?signature of forensics? format to answer common investigator questions. In addition, this talk will explore the full power of elasticsearch?s searching and aggregation capabilities that can be utilized with indexed artifacts as well as the visualization functionality of Kibana. Use cases and code samples from real world investigations will be presented showing how you tap into this functionality already built into your ELK stack!
