Security Descriptor & ACL Monitoring
The ESA Threat Detection rules for permissions (security descriptors and ACLs) are vast limits vendor rules.
The rules in this section detect suspicious behavior related to file system permissions (ACLs).
- Detect processes started from directories that are user-writeable
- Detect process starts from directories with a low mandatory integrity label
uberAgent ESA has sophisticated features that make security descriptors, which can be a bit obscure and difficult to work with, much more accessible:
- SID to name lookup
- Conversion of hex access masks to permission strings
