Flocon 2012 Collection

  • These presentations, training slides, and posters were provided at FloCon 2012, an open conference that provides operational network analysts, tool developers, and researchers a forum to discuss the analysis of large volumes of traffic to showcase the next generation of flow-based analysis techniques.

    At FloCon 2012, participants focused on the progression of analytics from ideas, to prototypes, to tools. Since each phase has its own set of successes and raises its own set of challenges, organizers encouraged submissions and discussions across the spectrum, and participants addressed topics such as identifying which incident case studies spark the seed of a new idea, discussing how flow data can help refine a static signature, identifying the costs and benefits of implementing a technique at the large-scale network level versus host level, and discussing how well new flow-based analytical tools integrate into an analysts workflow.
