Do you know Bro? If you work in the network security world you most likely do. Bro is an open-source network security monitor.
While focusing on network security monitoring, Bro provides a comprehensive platform for more general network traffic analysis as well. Bro has successfully bridged the traditional gap between academia and operations since its inception. Today, it is relied upon operationally in particular by many scientific environments for securing their cyberinfrastructure. Bro’s user community includes major universities, research labs, supercomputing centers, and open-science communities. The U.S. government is a huge user.
Other users of Bro may be using it without knowing it. It is open source and used in many other solutions.
Bro is open source, and supported by a robust community of developers and leaders and users. They gather at a yearly conference called BroCon.
BroCon is the most important community event for users, developers, incident responders, threat hunters and architects who rely on the open-source Bro network security monitor as a critical element in their security stack.
This year join your colleagues who rely on Bro for technical talks, demonstrations and discussions about the project, its many applications, and its future. If you’re interested in the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape and how Bro can help your organization by providing better data about network traffic, then BroCon 2018 is a critical event for you.
The event will be held in Arlington VA Oct 10-12, 2018.
