A rich history of open source contribution
Stamus Networks has a long history of developing and supporting open source technologies. The company was founded by Éric Leblond and Peter Manev, two open source icons. Both Eric and Peter are members of the Open Information Security Foundation executive team and developers on the Suricata project, the widely-deployed open source intrusion detection and network security monitoring engine. The OISF is a non-profit organization created to build community and to support open source security technologies like Suricata.
In addition to our extensive contributions to Suricata itself, our team at Stamus Labs have three active projects underway.
- Since 2014, we have developed and maintained SELKS, the popular turnkey Suricata-based open source intrusion detection system (IDS) and Network Security Monitor (NSM) system.
- More recently, we introduced the Stamus App for Splunk which is a free and open source Splunk app for investigating and hunting in the IDS alert data and the protocol transaction logs generated by Suricata sensors. This Splunk app also provides complete access to data from Stamus Security Platform.
- And finally, we recently introduced GopherCap, an innovative PCAP manipulation application that provides accurate playback of extra large PCAP files directly from tar archives.
