This self-paced tutorial comes complete with lab exercises in which you will explore the different ways to access key metrics, controls, and metadata within RSA NetWitness Logs and Packets. It begins by reviewing how RSA has implemented the REST API and reasons for its use. Then, through a series of demonstrations, it shows Administrators, Developers, and security team members how to “get,” “set,” and use data from the back-end of the RSA NetWitness product in a programmatic fashion. Different access methods such as use of the NetWitness GUI, the REST GUI, CLI use of curl, and automated uses within tutorial scripts are presented and compared. The course even provides a sample Python script that you can extend for your own use. Lab exercises walk you through “real life” examples of REST API's use and give you the foundations to begin your own research and use of this powerful tool.
