Following the release of our detection engine, Elastic opened up a new GitHub repo of our public detection rules. See: This is where our security intelligence and analytics team develops rules, creates issues, manages PR’s – and by making the repo public we’re inviting external contributors into the workflow. This gives contributors visibility into our development process and a clear path for rules to be released with the detection engine. If time allows, James can also talk about the preview we recently released of Event Query Language (EQL) in Elasticsearch. This is the correlation query language that Elastic adopted through the acquisition of Endgame last year to support threat hunting and threat detection use cases. It’s a feature that users have been asking for for years and an exciting step toward natively integrating EQL into the Stack.
