Splunk Attack Range

July 15, 2022

Purpose 🛡

The Attack Range is a detection development platform, which solves three main challenges in detection engineering:

  • The user is able to quickly build a small lab infrastructure as close as possible to a production environment.
  • The Attack Range performs attack simulation using different engines such as Atomic Red Team or Prelude Operator in order to generate real attack data.
  • It integrates seamlessly into any Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline to automate the detection rule testing process.


A demo (~12 min) that shows the basic functions of the attack range. It builds a testing environment using terraform, walks through the data collected by Splunk. Then attacks it using Atomic Red Team with MITRE ATT&CK Technique T1003.002, and Threat Actor simulation playbook using PurpleSharp. Finally showcases how Splunk Security Content searches are used to detect the attack.
