Mapping To Strider

Strider is a threat group that has been active since at least 2011 and has targeted victims in Russia, China, Sweden, Belgium, Iran, and Rwanda.


Disclaimer: We present this mapping to stimulate thinking about active defense options to combat this adversary, not to present all possibilities. We invite you to use this as a guide and add your own use cases for applying Shield techniques to counter each adversary action.

Note: All ATT&CK Group sub-technique mappings have been remapped to their parent technique and were derived from Group Technique mappings in ATT&CK v8.

T1556 - Modify Authentication Process There is an opportunity to use security controls on systems in order to affect the success of an adversary. DTE0032 - Security Controls A defender could implement security controls to force an adversary to modify the authentication process if they want to collect or utilize credentials on a system.
T1556 - Modify Authentication Process There is an opportunity to monitor logs on a system for common ways adversaries behave and detect on that activity. DTE0034 - System Activity Monitoring A defender could monitor logs off-system in order to detect adversary activities even when logs have been deleted on the system.
