GULP: A Unified Logging Architecture for Authentication Data

Matt Selsky and Daniel Medina, Columbia University


We have implemented the Grand Unified Logging Project, GULP, a flexible aggregation system for authentication log data. The system merges disparate logs stored across various servers into a single format according to an XML schema. This single format is logged to a database and queried via a web interface. The strength of this system lies in the ability to correlate information across multiple logging sources and display relevant information through a simple interface.
