Vade Cloud


Vade Cloud offers all protections against threats for any email inbox.

In this documentation we will explain how to collect and send Vade Cloud logs to SEKOIA.IO.

The following built-in rules match the intake Vade Cloud. This documentation is updated automatically and is based solely on the fields used by the intake which are checked against our rules. This means that some rules will be listed but might not be relevant with the intake.

Burp Suite Tool Detected

Burp Suite is a cybersecurity tool. When used as a proxy service, its purpose is to intercept packets and modify them to send them to the server. Burp Collaborator is a network service that Burp Suite uses to help discover many kinds of vulnerabilities (vulnerabilities scanner).

  • Effort: intermediate

Detection of domain names potentially related to cryptomining activities.

  • Effort: master
Dynamic DNS Contacted

Detect communication with dynamic dns domain. This kind of domain is often used by attackers. This rule can trigger false positive in non-controlled environment because dynamic dns is not always malicious.

  • Effort: master
Exfiltration Domain

Detects traffic toward a domain flagged as a possible exfiltration vector.

  • Effort: master
Potential DNS Tunnel

Detects domain name which is longer than 95 characters. Long domain names are distinctive of DNS tunnels.

  • Effort: advanced
Remote Access Tool Domain

Detects traffic toward a domain flagged as a Remote Administration Tool (RAT).

  • Effort: master
SEKOIA.IO Intelligence Feed

Detect threats based on indicators of compromise (IOCs) collected by SEKOIA's Threat and Detection Research team.

  • Effort: elementary EICAR Detection

Detects observables in CTI tagged as EICAR, which are fake samples meant to test detection.

  • Effort: master
TOR Usage Generic Rule

Detects TOR usage globally, whether the IP is a destination or source. TOR is short for The Onion Router, and it gets its name from how it works. TOR intercepts the network traffic from one or more apps on user’s computer, usually the user web browser, and shuffles it through a number of randomly-chosen computers before passing it on to its destination. This disguises user location, and makes it harder for servers to pick him/her out on repeat visits, or to tie together separate visits to different sites, this making tracking and surveillance more difficult. Before a network packet starts its journey, user’s computer chooses a random list of relays and repeatedly encrypts the data in multiple layers, like an onion. Each relay knows only enough to strip off the outermost layer of encryption, before passing what’s left on to the next relay in the list.

  • Effort: master
Telegram Bot API Request

Detects suspicious DNS queries to used by Telegram Bots of any kind

  • Effort: advanced

Create the intake in

Go to the intake page and create a new intake from the format Vade Cloud. Copy the intake key.

Pull events

To start to pull events, you have to:

  1. Go to the playbooks page and create a new playbook with the Fetch new logs from Vade Cloud trigger
  2. Set up the module configuration with the:

    • Vade Cloud API hostname: the URL of your admin interface of Vade Cloud. Most of the time this is; TO BE ADAPTED depending on your context.
    • The email of the user: the login you use to connect to the admin interface of Vade Cloud. The account type MUST be "Admin".
    • The user password: the password you use to connect to the admin interface of Vade Cloud.
  3. Set up the trigger configuration with the intake key from the previous step.

  4. Start the playbook and enjoy your events


Please make sure that the login is your account email.


The events collection will not take events older than 7 days into account.
