General Motors is an American multinational automotive company headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. GM is ranked 22nd on the Fortune 500 for total revenue and is the largest automobile manufacturer headquartered in the United States. For more than a quarter of a century, GM has integrated their OnStar in-vehicle safety and security service into millions of vehicles to become the most connected automaker in the world, with more than 22 million members.

Real-time, open-source threat intelligence is imperative in mitigating the risk of successful cyberattacks against an organization. The threat landscape is ever evolving. Consequently, GM’s security analysts need up-to-date information on all threats to ensure the organization’s safety.

The Malware Information Sharing Platform (MISP) is an open-source sharing platform dedicated to sharing threat intelligence. However, MISP’s user interface lacks several features, making it not very user-friendly or customizable.

Our Enhanced MISP User Interface provides for more customization within the MISP application and enriches existing functionalities.

The enhanced interface enables the removal and reordering of columns within the malware tables. Improved sorting functionality and search query filtering allow for more in-depth results from searches. The user interface boasts a more refined and intuitive design as well.

Using our software, GM cybersecurity analysts are able to create a version of MISP that is tailored to their specific needs and is easier to use, saving time and increasing productivity.

The front end of our software is developed using Bootstrap, a web application framework that utilizes CSS, JS, and HTML. Our back-end software functionality is implemented using PHP.
