FIRST 2008 Log Analysis and Visualization Workshop

Category: Log Analysis,Visualization — Tags: , , , – Raffael Marty @ 9:56 pm

first1.gifI am presenting at the FIRST 2008 conference in Vancouver next week. I am speaking on my birthday, June 25th, from 9.50 until 12.50. The topic is “Applied Security Visualization” – the same as my book title. I am going through some of the material from the book and show how visualization can be used to analyze log files.

Some of the highlights:

  • I am going to show how you can use Splunk to manage not just single-line logs, but also analyze multi-line data, such as data from top, ps, etc.
  • I am showing how you can use AfterGlow with Splunk.
  • I am probably going to show a sneak peak of DAVIX. The Data Visualization and Analysis Linux (DAVIX) is a live CD that will be released at BlackHat this year.

Bridging Security and Visualization

Category: Log Analysis,Uncategorized,Visualization — Tags: , , – Raffael Marty @ 5:56 pm


OnSecrity just released another video of the conversation we recorded last year during RSA. I am talking about security visualization in light of the book I am working on. This video cast is the sequel to the first one that I posted a few days ago.

picture-5.pngOne of the topics I am discussing in the video is the “false dichotomy” between security and visualization. This is a topic that I talked about during a talk at the MIT Lincoln Labs at the beginning of December. The presentation showed how there are really two disciplines that come together in security visualization: Security and Visualization. The problem with this is that visualization people don’t know much about security and the other way around. It’s a very interesting topic to explore and it explains some of the mistakes that are being made with visualization tools and is also reflected in visualization research.
