Permanent link: [Article]-Applied Security Visualization
Review by JP Bourget, CISSP, MCSE, MS
Having a process to better understand your logs, be it firewall, packet captures, IDS, web server, or proxy logs, is something that many security professionals strive for. We have seen some interesting software over the past few years, such as OSSIM and Splunk. Some vendor’s provide excellent log visualization for their products, some don’t do enough, or aren’t flexible enough. That brings along Applied Security Visualization (ASV) by Raffael Marty. Marty’s book gives some valuable insight on how to bridge the fields of IT Security and Data Visualization all in one book. While this book provides a wealth of detailed knowledge, I’m going to point out the major features instead of getting really detailed.
BTW - Check out Raffy's new company, PixlCloud.
