Who's Behind It
threatTRANSFORM was created in 2014 by Brad Lindow, Timothy Plocinski, and Laz. We felt that using STIX can sometimes be time consuming so we did something about it and created this solution for you. Based on the MIT Open Source License, threatTRANSFORM was created out of the need for streamlining the creation of STIX datasets. Everything from analyzing complex information to sifting through machine data, the threatTRANSFORM application provides a powerful templating engine.
