What You Need to Know About Splunk Lantern

Splunk Lantern holds a unique spot in the Splunk self-help ecosystem.

Imagine for example that you're a security analyst, you have seen some signs of potential DNS exfiltration in your network, and you want to know how to use your Splunk deployment to monitor for it.

Our official product documentation will help you understand how to generally set up alerts and dashboards, but it won't connect that information to specific data types and use cases. Likewise, the Splunk Community is full of great tips on how other customers set up their environments, but you want validated, step-by-step instructions that you can follow and apply. 

That's where Lantern comes in - by providing information that's written by Splunk experts, is applicable across different types of environments, and is oriented towards real-world goals, you get the step-by-step guidance you need to plug into your deployment and start Monitoring a network for DNS exfiltration right away.
