Efficient Suricata: Migrating from Millions of Events to Manageable Insights @ Suricon

by Peter Manev | Oct 07, 2021 | Suricata, Events

I’m pleased to partner with my colleague and OISF Board Member - Eric Leblond for this year’s Suricon event. Together, we invite you to our virtual talk - “Efficient Suricata: Migrating from Millions of Events to Manageable Insights”.

SuriCon is the annual open source technology community conference that highlights discussions and developments related to Suricata, the powerful intrusion detection and prevention and network security monitoring (IDS/IPS/NSM) engine. As Suricata is at the heart of our company, we are excited that Stamus Networks will be part of this year’s event - both on-site in Boston and virtually. 

Suricata is a powerful engine when talking about network detection. However, the alerts and network protocol log events produced by it could often be overwhelming without actually giving the information that we need. It is essential to know how to get the right insights for your use case. 

In this talk we will share some hands-on examples from our hunting in the wild experience and will zoom in on detection techniques that will help you make sense out of the vast amount of data that Suricata captures. We will talk about the dos and don'ts, and we will demonstrate our concepts using the open-source SELKS platform. The focus of the talk will be on threat detection and threat hunting. 

Join us virtually at SuriCon 2021. And if you are planning to attend the event in person, be sure to visit the Stamus table and say "hi" to one of our executives. If you are considering coming to the OISF training “Advanced Deployment and Configuration with Suricata, the organizers are giving a 20% discount off the training to those who register for both.

We hope to see you there!
