Trying to correlate beaconing events

Good day, We are trying to strategize how we might be able to look for beaconing or periodic traffic going to the same or location. Is there a way that we can count events from the same user (Without knowing the user) to the same destination IP and only alert us if we see so many events within an hour?

Re: Trying to correlate beaconing events

Can I see a sample of the event you want to use to do this so I can see what fields are being sent? Please substitute fake username and ip addresses in the data. I am not sure if we can do exactly what you are looking to do as it depends on the event we are collecting and the data in that event.

Thank You,
Eric

I attached a screenshot. Basically we are seeing c2 traffic trying to go out periodically. Just trying to set up a correlation rule that could alert us to this sort of beaconing behaviour

I am looking into this currently to see if with current abilities this is able to be completed.

Thank You,
