Subject: Re: [cti] Looking for Example Shell


In TAXII land you also, more than likely be able to just ask for an Indicator or other TLO, without the overhead of the package.  So something like:

  "type": "indicator",

Take a look here for the working definition of a package: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1YcEtyUGdFkJIPdDZ7K-mHbvjFt-5pOL2EIw_ZJuqNpM/edit#heading=h.c9oxowopqs2

As you can probably see, it’s essentially your former suggestion. We’ve had discussions about it though and I’ve argued the latter, mainly for ease of use. Bottom line is that we haven’t really decided, and have gone with the 1.x approach for the time being.

Also, Paul Patrick from iSight has provided this notional example: http://taxii2-demo.soltra.com/taxii/mygroup/collections/mycollection/packages/package--3b3441de-8bf2-409e-a7e8-8f296f385057

In terms of validation…because of our `type` keyword it’s actually pretty easy to validate. The challenge is on understanding the validation message, because what you’ll get back is: you didn’t provide an attack pattern OR a malware OR an indicator OR a threat actor, etc. and it’s up to you to figure out which you actually wanted.

I have been trying to make sure I'm up to date on what a STIX 2.0 document
will look like, and while there is a great deal of information about
particular object types and common attributes I haven't had much luck
finding an example of what the shell of a document will look like.  Does
anyone know if we have a generally agreed upon sample of this somewhere?

So far I have heard two different visions of STIX 2.0 the first more aligns
to STIX 1.X and roughly maps to a json format of:
Header: [],
Observables: [],
Indicators: [], ...
Relationships: []

The second moves to a node link model along the lines of:

Header: [],
Objects: [],
Relationships: []

I think that the second model makes lookups simpler when resolving
relationships while also making adding new object types easier, but also may
introduce additional challenges when attempting to validate the JSON's

I haven't found confirmation on what has been generally agreed upon or if a
consensus has been reached.
