I'm working on a new install of FSR 7.0.2 with the Incident and MITRE feature packs.  
The main use-case is suspicious phishing email investigation.  We are a Google Workspace Gmail customer.
We currently use the Gmail "Compliance" and Quarantine functionality to hold suspicious email for investigation.  The analyst will then either deliver or reject the email for quarantine.

We want to replace this process with FortiSOAR.  Or current thought is to use GMail Compliance to "modify" the message instead of sending to quarantine. We would then make the following modifications to the incoming email:
  1. Modify Message Headers
    1. Add X-Gm-Original-To header to capture the original envelope recipient.  This functionality is native to Gmail Compliance / Modify.
    2. Add X-Gm-Spam and X-Gm-Phishy headers - to record the reputation that Gmail  safety determined.  This functionality is native to Gmail Compliance / Modify
    3. Add X-VMC-Compliance custom header to the name of the compliance rule that was triggered.
  2. Change Envelope Recipient
    1. Change to suspicious@ vmcmail.com
  3. Suspicious@ vmcmail.com is an IMAP mailbox, so FSR will pull emails from this box

So my first question is whether to send these to the Alert module or the send them to the new IR" Emails" module.  It would appear from your documentation that the Emails module was its intent.  The description sounds like exactly what we want.  What is your recommendation?

Emails: Stores emails, which can contain potentially malicious emails, such as phishing emails. Once an email is added to this module, FortiSOAR™ extracts, and stores the Email Headers for further investigation. FortiSOAR™ also creates an alert with a link to the email.

How to handle False Positives

Here's the issue.  If the email is a false positive, how do we send this back to Gmail for delivery?  We have the original envelope recipient stored in X-Gm-Original-To, and the old message is actually still stored in the suspicious@ vmcmail.com in the processed folder based on the current connector configuration.  Has anyone solved this issue?  Options we see are:

1. There is an Gmail API that can allow sending a message.  This may allow us to send the message without changing the FROM address.
2. Use SMTP to send the message, setting the envelope recipient to the X-GM-Original-To  and using the "inbound gateway" function to stop breaking SPF/DMARC.

https://support.google.com/a/answer/60730?product_name=UnuFlow&hl=en&visit_id=637830460580148425-414...
3. Somehow deliver the message using IMAP.  Not sure how.

Any recommendations here?
TIA

Extending the current GSuite connector is probably the best solution. Google has a pretty well documented Send Email API

Thanks for the suggestion.  Using the API was our first thought as well.  

Can you describe the workflow that was intended for using the Emails module?  Why should we use this instead of just using the Alerts module directly?  We use case does this solve?

FortiSOAR design is meant to be flexible to reflect any customer process, so Emails module is not mandatory (nor Alerts for that matter) you have the freedom to select which modules to use or even create your own and include them in the automation workflow. This being said, typically our customers use the Email module to store a carbon copy of the suspicious emails with all its components as evidence, some added a hash code field to prevent tempering.-------------------------------------------

Can you also expand on the use of the Sensitive Files module? How should this be used?
Can you expand on the use of the Users module?  Is this for storing "threat actors" or "target users"?

Correction to the second question.  What is the purpose of the Employee Watchlist module?  I see now this is for employees.  Is this for managing threat targets or for high risk users and privileged account monitoring?

Dan, The need of this module was born out of various use cases, which needed an interface with HR data, of employees who were on notice period in an organisation. This was to fetch and sync on that data from HR systems, so that various use cases and alerts from DLP systems, CASBs etc., could be supplemented with more information around the user, and raise the severity if the user was found on this watchlist.

Thanks Amit.
It would appear that using the MS AD Connector to sync users to this module would give us targets.

What does "on notice" mean?  Not familiar with this term.

Extending the current GSuite connector is probably the best solution. Google has a pretty well documented Send Email API

I'm working on a new install of FSR 7.0.2 with the Incident and MITRE feature packs.  
The main use-case is suspicious phishing email investigation.  We are a Google Workspace Gmail customer.
We currently use the Gmail "Compliance" and Quarantine functionality to hold suspicious email for investigation.  The analyst will then either deliver or reject the email for quarantine.

We want to replace this process with FortiSOAR.  Or current thought is to use GMail Compliance to "modify" the message instead of sending to quarantine. We would then make the following modifications to the incoming email:
  1. Modify Message Headers
    1. Add X-Gm-Original-To header to capture the original envelope recipient.  This functionality is native to Gmail Compliance / Modify.
    2. Add X-Gm-Spam and X-Gm-Phishy headers - to record the reputation that Gmail  safety determined.  This functionality is native to Gmail Compliance / Modify
    3. Add X-VMC-Compliance custom header to the name of the compliance rule that was triggered.
  2. Change Envelope Recipient
    1. Change to suspicious@ vmcmail.com
  3. Suspicious@ vmcmail.com is an IMAP mailbox, so FSR will pull emails from this box

So my first question is whether to send these to the Alert module or the send them to the new IR" Emails" module.  It would appear from your documentation that the Emails module was its intent.  The description sounds like exactly what we want.  What is your recommendation?

Emails: Stores emails, which can contain potentially malicious emails, such as phishing emails. Once an email is added to this module, FortiSOAR™ extracts, and stores the Email Headers for further investigation. FortiSOAR™ also creates an alert with a link to the email.

How to handle False Positives

Here's the issue.  If the email is a false positive, how do we send this back to Gmail for delivery?  We have the original envelope recipient stored in X-Gm-Original-To, and the old message is actually still stored in the suspicious@ vmcmail.com in the processed folder based on the current connector configuration.  Has anyone solved this issue?  Options we see are:

1. There is an Gmail API that can allow sending a message.  This may allow us to send the message without changing the FROM address.
2. Use SMTP to send the message, setting the envelope recipient to the X-GM-Original-To  and using the "inbound gateway" function to stop breaking SPF/DMARC.

3. Somehow deliver the message using IMAP.  Not sure how.

Any recommendations here?

I reviewed the IR functionality, and it does include a module called "Users".  This doesn't appear to be a list of "Threat Actors" as is described in the IR addon documentation:

  • Vulnerability Management: The Vulnerability Management section is a collection of all modules typically related to vulnerabilities that exist in your system. It contains the following modules:
    • Users: Users represent a list of users who could potentially cause harm to your systems.


However, this doesn't appear to be either Targets or Threat Actors.  It looks like a way to manage FortiSOAR access maybe?  Can you shed light on the Users module?

Thanks Amit.
It would appear that using the MS AD Connector to sync users to this module would give us targets.

What does "on notice" mean?  Not familiar with this term.

Dan, The need of this module was born out of various use cases, which needed an interface with HR data, of employees who were on notice period in an organisation. This was to fetch and sync on that data from HR systems, so that various use cases and alerts from DLP systems, CASBs etc., could be supplemented with more information around the user, and raise the severity if the user was found on this watchlist.

Correction to the second question.  What is the purpose of the Employee Watchlist module?  I see now this is for employees.  Is this for managing threat targets or for high risk users and privileged account monitoring?

Thanks for the reply.

Can you also expand on the use of the Sensitive Files module? How should this be used?
Can you expand on the use of the Users module?  Is this for storing "threat actors" or "target users"?

TIA

FortiSOAR design is meant to be flexible to reflect any customer process, so Emails module is not mandatory (nor Alerts for that matter) you have the freedom to select which modules to use or even create your own and include them in the automation workflow. This being said, typically our customers use the Email module to store a carbon copy of the suspicious emails with all its components as evidence, some added a hash code field to prevent tempering.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Using the API was our first thought as well.  

Can you describe the workflow that was intended for using the Emails module?  Why should we use this instead of just using the Alerts module directly?  We use case does this solve?
