Lastline Connector for EDR
Carbon Black EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) is the new name for the product formerly called CB Response.
This connector integrates the VMWare Carbon Black EDR product with Lastline. Integration with VMWare Carbon Black Cloud products, including “NGAV” and “Enterprise EDR,” is not included here. The Lastline connector submits binaries collected by the VMware Carbon Black EDR to a Lastline appliance for binary analysis. The results are collected and placed into an Intelligence Feed on your VMWare Carbon Black EDR server. The feed will then tag any binaries executed on your endpoints identified as malware by Lastline. Only binaries submitted by the connector for analysis will be included in the generated Intelligence Feed.
Installing the Lastline Connector
As root on your VMWare Carbon Black EDR or other RPM based 64-bit Linux distribution server:
cd /etc/yum.repos.d curl -O https://opensource.carbonblack.com/release/x86_64/CbOpenSource.repo yum install python-cb-lastline-connector
Once the software is installed via YUM, copy the
/etc/cb/integrations/lastline/connector.conf.example file to
/etc/cb/integrations/lastline/connector.conf. Edit this file and place your Carbon Black API key into the
variable and your Carbon Black server’s base URL into the
Then you must place your credentials for Lastline into the configuration file: place your API key and API token respectively into the
lastline_api_token variables in the
If you are using an on-premise Lastline appliance, make sure to place the URL for your on-premise Lastline appliance in the
lastline_url variable and set
0 if your appliance does not have a valid SSL certificate.
Any errors will be logged into
Ensure that the configured API credentials are up to date, and have permissions to submit files for analysis.
If you suspect a problem, please first look at the Lastline connector logs found here:
(There might be multiple files as the logger “rolls over” when the log file hits a certain size).
If you want to re-run the analysis across your binaries:
- Stop the service:
service cb-lastline-connector stop
- Remove the database file:
- Remove the feed from your CB server’s Threat Intelligence page
- Restart the service:
service cb-lastline-connector start
