Hortonworks Cybersecurity Platform (HCP) Connector

Overview

The ThreatQuotient for HCP Connector integrates ThreatQ with the Kafka brokers installed in HCP. Kafka is a messaging service which is used for handling high volume real-time data feeds, and is one of the entry points for data into HCP.

The connector runs a saved search in ThreatQ, parses the indicators from the search, and then sends them as individual messages to a Kafka endpoint in the Metron API that is installed as part of HCP.
