Description: You have the ability to create a Canarytoken that has a unique Internet resolvable domain name.
Why does this matter? Once you are able to get an alert for a DNS based token, or a Web based token, you have the building blocks for squillions of possible tripwires.
Follow the steps below to create a DNS Canarytoken:
Log in to your Console.
Select the Canarytokens tile.
Select the DNS token from the list.
Over time, if you are using tokens correctly, you will deploy thousands of them all over the place. Make sure that your Reminder is as descriptive as possible, and we will remind the future you of where the token was dropped. Nothing sucks more than having a token fire an alert that reads “test" - and not knowing where you placed it.
Note: we chose "Placed In Jims .ssh/config File" as the reminder
Copy the token and place it in its intended location.
An alert is triggered when the domain name is resolved.
That's it, you're done ;-)
