Add threat intelligence to Splunk Enterprise Security

As an ES administrator, you can correlate indicators of suspicious activity, known threats, or potential threats with your events by adding threat intelligence to Splunk Enterprise Security. Adding threat intelligence enhances your analysts' security monitoring capabilities and adds context to their investigations.

Splunk Enterprise Security includes a selection of threat intelligence sources. Splunk Enterprise Security also supports multiple types of threat intelligence so that you can add your own threat intelligence.

ES administrators can add threat intelligence to Splunk Enterprise Security by downloading a feed from the Internet, uploading a structured file, inserting the threat intelligence directly from events in Splunk Enterprise Security, or activating intelligence sources from the Splunk Mission Control app.


Review the types of threat intelligence that Splunk Enterprise Security supports. See Supported types of threat intelligence in Splunk Enterprise Security.


  1. Configure the threat intelligence sources included with Splunk Enterprise Security.
  2. For each additional threat intelligence source not already included with Splunk Enterprise Security, follow the procedure to add threat intelligence that matches the source and format of the intelligence that you want to add.
  3. Verify that you have added threat intelligence successfully in Splunk Enterprise Security.
