KQL rule to Detect Scanning Activty

Copper Contributor

I want assistance in building KQL query to detect scanning activity in my network.

For example - if any IP or Host is trying to attempt/scan more than 500 distinct IPs or Ports in short interval of time.


Query used in Splunk: 

index=* sourcetype=firewall*

| stats dc(dest_port) as num(dest_port) dc(dest_ip) as num_dest_ip by src_ip

| where num_dest_port >500 or num_dest_ip .500


Please help me to build KQL on this.
