Brooery: A Graphical Environment for Analysis of Security-Relevant Network Activity

Christian Kreibich, University of Cambridge


We present the design and implementation of the Brooery, a system for graphical analysis of network activity reported by instances of the Bro intrusion detection system. It supports multiple input streams and provides a web-based graphical user interface to allow the user to analyze the reported activity. The Brooery understands activity at different abstraction levels, allows for quick drill-down searches by focusing on contextuality when moving through the history of events, and provides user-friendly and semantically strong hierarchical filtering to reduce the amount of information presented.
