Learning About Log Analysis and Visualization in Taipei

Filed under: Log Analysis,Visualization — @ 13th of September 2011, 10:29

L1090818_smallI just returned from Taipei where I was teaching log analysis and visualization classes for Trend Micro. Three classes a 20 students. I am surprised that my voice is still okay after all that talking. It’s probably all the tea I was drinking.

The class schedule looked as follows:

Day 1: Log Analysis

  • data sources
  • data analysis and visualization linux (davix)
  • log management and siem overview
  • application logging guidelines
  • log data processing
  • loggly introduction
  • splunk introduction
  • data analysis with splunk

Day 2: Visualization

  • visualization theory
  • data visualization tools an libraries
  • perimeter threat use-cases
  • host-based data analysis in splunk
  • packet capture analysis in splunk
  • loggly api overview
  • visualization resources

IMG_2069The class was accompanied by a number of exercises that helped the students apply the theory we talked about. The exercises are partly pen and paper and partly hands-on data analysis of sample logs with the davix life CD.

I love Taipei, especially the food. I hope I’ll have a chance to visit again soon.

PS: If you are looking for a list of visualization resources, they got moved over to secviz.
