Overview

Multi-environment orchestration allows ThreatConnect® users that have an Environment Server behind a firewall to use their instance to communicate with that server and run applications inside their firewall. This article provides the system requirements for installing an instance of the ThreatConnect Environment Server. See Playbook Environments for information about how to administrate an Environment and configure an Environment to an Environment Server.

System Requirements

In order to install an instance of the ThreatConnect Environment Server, the requirements in the following sections must be met.

Hardware

The ThreatConnect Environment Server platform requires a server, virtual or physical, that meets the following minimum specifications:

  • 4 CPU/vCPU Cores (2 GHz)
  • 4 GB of memory
  • 10 GB of storage

As the number or frequency of jobs increases, the need to increase system resources will likely occur. The listing in Table 1 highlights typical TC Exchange apps and their specific system-resource needs.

Table 1

App Name Frequency CPU Used Memory Used
ArcSight EMS Extract Daily 1.44 75
Tanium Extract v2.0 Daily < 1 < 50
QRadar® Extract v2.0 Daily < 1 < 50
Palo Alto PAN-OS® Block List Daily .10 2.5

Software

The ThreatConnect Environment Server and its supporting packages require the following software environment in order to run properly:

  • Operating System: Red Hat® Linux® variant—either Red Hat Enterprise Linux® (RHEL) or CentOS 6 or 7
  • Java® Development Kit (JDK): Access to a local installation of Java 8 (JDK version 1.8)
  • Python®: Installation of Python 3.6.x for Linux

SMTP Server

TC Exchange requires an available Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server to send email alerts and to correspond with users. This server must be routable from the server running the platform, and if SMTP authorization is required, the ThreatConnect Environment Server will need access to a username and password in order to generate these emails.
