Abstract

In this paper, the authors present VisFlowConnect-IP, a network flow visualization tool that allows operators to detect and investigate anomalous internal and external network traffic. The authors model the network on a parallel axes graph with hosts as nodes and traffic flows as lines connecting these nodes. Also presented is an overview of this tool's purpose, as well as a detailed description of its functions.
