STIX 2.1 and Beyond - The Essential Role of STIX in CTI Operations
This White Paper highlights the exciting capabilities of STIX 2.1 and provides clear guidance on mapping out the optimal role of STIX in your cyber threat intelligence operations (CTI-Ops) to better meet your stakeholders’ needs.
Even the largest enterprises and governments must work together as the only viable way to get ahead of the threat. Central to this happening is having a robust means to share CTI information using the Structured Threat Information eXpression (STIX) language. Supporting STIX is even becoming mandatory for some international governments.
Given the robustness of STIX, some organizations are attempting to build their entire CTI-Ops program on a STIX-exclusive model. Although this is an admirable goal, it's advisable to define the optimal role of STIX in your CTI-Ops first and then augment your data model where necessary to support your stakeholders. This white paper will explain why this approach is best for building a responsive and agile CTI-Ops program.
From this white paper, you will learn the following:
- A recap of STIX 2.1: streamlining the number of objects, improving data transfer efficiency with JSON, and improvements to community knowledge building
- Delineating the role of STIX for CTI orchestration and CTI operationalization to better support your stakeholders
- Using your threat intelligence platform (TIP) to leverage STIX as you operationalize your CTI
- Optimizing STIX for your CTI-Ops, focusing on compatibility, consistency, complexity, accountability, and futureproofing
