Abstract:

Today Austin, Sid, and I will be talking about how organizations can use network flow data -- and well tell you what that is -- to identify the top public facing assets and services with most network traffic on your network. And the reason this is important is because a potential attacker can observe and take advantage of this information. This conversation is based on an August 2012 report that Austin and Sid authored, which is titled Network Profiling Using Flow.
