Shodan Monitor is a tool that allows security professionals to monitor specific IP addresses or keywords and receive notifications when new devices or services matching those criteria appear online. This can be useful for identifying new vulnerabilities or tracking the spread of malware, for example. Security professionals can also use Shodan to search for specific types of devices or services on the internet, such as industrial control systems or webcams, to identify potential security risks. Additionally, they can use Shodan to identify open ports and services running on IP addresses, which can aid in penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.
Microsoft Sentinel is a cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) platform that allows security professionals to collect, analyze, and respond to security threats. One way to integrate Shodan Monitor with Microsoft Sentinel is by using the Shodan API to retrieve data and then sending that data to Microsoft Sentinel for analysis and correlation with other security data.
The benefit of integrating Shodan Monitor with Microsoft Sentinel is that it allows security professionals to combine the data and insights from Shodan with other security data they have in their environment, such as logs from firewalls and intrusion detection systems, to gain a more complete understanding of the security threats they are facing. For example, if Shodan Monitor alerts a security professional to a new device or service running on a specific IP address, they can use Microsoft Sentinel to search for other security data related to that IP address and create a more detailed incident report. Additionally, it could be possible to use Sentinel playbooks to automate incident response and mitigation in case of detected threat by Shodan monitor.
Shodan Monitor’s alerting capabilities allow for notifications to be dispatched through email, instant messaging, or via a webhook. The integration process is outlined in a blog post by Mikko Koivunen and is relatively simple to execute. It entails configuring the settings within your Shodan account, which necessitates obtaining an API license. For testing and proof-of-concept purposes, a one-time, lifetime license for $45 is sufficient.
