Cadence in Chaos: Sounds of DDoS in NetFlow Logs
April 26, 2018 / Kacy Zurkus
For those who appreciate the healing power of music, new research could prove to be a magical security tool. By correlating traffic types from NetFlow logs with sounds of instruments, researchers at Imperva were able to translate changes in network traffic into song. Inspired by a TED Talk called "Can We Create New Senses for Humans?" presented by Dr. David Eagleman, adjunct professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University, Imperva's team wondered whether tapping into the sense of sound could change the way they interpret network traffic.
