Open security group launch a new language to connect security tools

The Open Cybersecurity Alliance (OCA), a group of suppliers dedicated to connecting fragmented cybersecurity space with open source practices and codes, has reportedly announced the availability of Open DXL (Data Exchange Layer) Ontology, a new open-source language developed to connect cybersecurity tools through a shared messaging framework.

The group claims that the new language will snip the need for custom integrations between all the products that use it. This move marks a vital milestone in the group’s mission to accelerate interoperability in security.

The open-source language could offer common, single language for information, notifications, and actions across security products, delivering users with a set of tooling that could be applied once and automatically reused everywhere, while cutting the need for updating integrations for new product functionalities and versions.

According to OCA, the adoption of OpenDXL Ontology would build a stronger, united front to protect and defend across all types of security tools, while decreasing the burden of point integrations between independent products.

Established in autumn 2019, the security group is led by McAfee and IBM Security. Originally designed by McAfee, the Open Data Exchange Layer messaging framework is used by over 4,000 enterprises and suppliers to share and develop integrations between several tools.

Apart from OpenDXL Ontology, the group is also partnering on STIX-Shifter, an out-of-the-box, universal search capability for security products, which originally came out of IBM Security. OCA claims that numerous visitors had gained access to STIX Shifter on Github, with several visitors branching off on project forks on top of the primary code.

Meanwhile, the OCA has also confirmed the formation of a new steering committee, which will unite leaders from members IBM Security, McAfee, Tripwire, AT&T, and Packet Clearinghouse to strengthen the technical development and direction of the body.
