Source Code:


TheHive is a scalable, open source and free Security Incident Response Platform designed to make life easier for SOCs, CSIRTs, CERTs and any information security practitioner dealing with security incidents that need to be investigated and acted upon swiftly.

TheHive supports different methods to store data, files, and indexes according to your needs. However, even for a standalone, production server, we strongly recommend using Apache Cassandra as a scalable and fault-tolerant database. Files and indexes storage can vary, depending on your target setup ; for standalone server, the local filesystem is suitable, while sereval options are possible in the case of a cluster configuration.
