At Elastic, we understand the value of our community. Community is at the core of what we do and who we are as a company. In an effort to recognize Elastic community contributors around the world, we launched the Elastic Contributor Program in September of this year.
The goal of this program is to encourage knowledge transfer within the Elastic community and build friendly competition around contributions. In this blog post, we’ll walk through ways in which you can contribute to the Elastic Security community and how to submit your contributions to our program for potential reward.
Contribute to the public rules repo
We believe in security through openness, not obscurity. For that reason, Elastic Security released a public GitHub repository where free rules are developed in the open. We welcome contributions from the community and believe this is a unique opportunity to share our collective knowledge, collaborate with each other, and solve security problems together as a community.
To start sharing your rule logic, check out elastic/detection-rules on GitHub. We have detailed instructions there for navigating the repository, forking and cloning, and creating a rule. We include a command line tool for bulk editing the files and to make creating new rules easier.
