The name of the supplier or the file name of the feed in the directory specified in the ServiceSettings > Bases element.

This attribute is mandatory.

confidence

The level of confidence of the feed or supplier. You can use values in the range of 1 to 100. The preset values are 100 for feeds from Kaspersky, 50 for OSINT feeds, and 50 for third-party feeds or suppliers.

This attribute is mandatory.

outdated_alert_period

The period (in hours) following the last feed update, after which a notification about the outdated feed (KL_ALERT_OutdatedFeed) is sent to the event target.

To turn off notifications for this feed, set this parameter to 0. If the attribute is omitted, the value of the ServiceSettings > OutdatedBasesAlertPeriod element is used.

We recommend that you set this parameter to 120 for commercial Kaspersky Data Feeds and to 720 for Kaspersky advanced persistent threat (APT) feeds. Also, we recommend that for OSINT feeds you set this parameter to 0 or another value that is convenient for you.

For third-party suppliers, this parameter is set to 0 by default.

This attribute is optional.

indicator_lifetime

The period (in minutes), after which indicators of compromise from the feed or supplier are removed from the database. If the indicator is detected on the basis of the incoming event, it is not removed from the database, but it can no longer be used in the matching process for the feed that contains this indicator or the supplier that provides it.

To enable an infinite time limit for the feed or supplier invalidation, set this attribute to 0. By default, the value of this attribute is seven days (10080 minutes).

This attribute is applied to the sources other than Kaspersky Threat Data Feeds.
