The explosive growth of malicious activities on worldwide communication networks, such as the Internet, has highlighted the need for efficient intrusion detection systems. The efficiency of traditional intrusion detection systems is limited by their inability to effectively relay relevant information due to their lack of interactive/immersive technologies. Visualized information is a technique that can encode large amounts of complex interrelated data, being at the same time easily quantified, manipulated, and processed by a human user. Authors have found that the representations can be quite effective at conveying the needed information and resolving the relationships extremely rapidly.
