This document describes how to install the CERT Australia CTI Toolkit.

Installation is streamlined using Python’s setuptools. The following installation process has been tested on clean install of Ubuntu Server 16.04.

  1. Install prerequisites required by setuptools and libtaxii:

    $ sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev libxml2-dev libxslt1-dev libz-dev
  2. Install the cti-toolkit:

    $ sudo pip install cti-toolkit

That’s it. You should now be able to run utilities, such as

$ -h


Online documentation is available at

To build the documentation you need Sphinx:

$ sudo pip install Sphinx sphinxcontrib-napoleon sphinx_rtd_theme
$ cd docs
$ make html

This will create an HTML version of the documentation in docs/_build/html.


Requires tox:

$ sudo pip install tox

Then run the tests from the repository root using:

$ tox
