Abstract

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