SECURITY SEMINAR SERIES
This presentation will introduce the tenets of network security monitoring (NSM) as defined and applied by Richard Bejtlich. Attendees will see how Bejtlich approaches incident detection and response by using statistical, session, full content, and alert data. The open source NSM suite Sguil (www.sguil.net) will be demonstrated via a free VMware image that attendees can try. Network-centric incident response and forensics issues will also be covered. Expect a lively discussion!
