Sharkfest.TV is a special subset of LMTV in that the contents are not only technical but have to be vendor neutral. It is meant for the uber geeks who normally attend Sharkfest once a year. It is the Amuse Bouche that are served throughout the year until the main meal begins.
Full packet capture, analysis and storage enables organisations to derive unbelievable levels of insight into network and security activity from their wire data. The processing power and storage to ‘keep up’ with today’s traffic rates and store every single packet can make these network forensics type systems unaffordable for many companies especially small to medium enterprises. The hardware required to store and index all the traffic for even a few days could be prohibitively expensive not to mention the technical expertise to try and interpret and understand the huge volumes of data. It is crucial to be able to see the ‘wood from the trees’ and quickly understand the data you are looking at. This session will explore the benefits of building more intelligence into the software in order to accurately identify the most common protocols and only store the most critical and important detail, the Network Metadata.
