The Security Onion Cloud Client: Network Security Monitoring for the Cloud

Free registration required

Executive Summary

With \"Cloud\" servers continuing to become ever more popular, along with typical off-site servers (VPS/Dedicated), Network Security Monitoring (NSM) practitioners struggle to gain insight into these devices, as they usually don't have the ability to tap the network traffic flowing to and from the servers - To solve this problem, the author propose designing a cross platform (Windows, Linux) NSM client that would integrate with security onion, a NSM-centric Linux distribution. Essentially, the NSM client would copy traffic (near real time) to the security onion sensor, which would then process the data as it would any other network tap.
