Next Research: Deception and Network Traffic Analysis

by Anton Chuvakin  |  September 6, 2018  |  2 Comments

While I am away at the Summit, I wanted to whip up a very quick blog post announcing our Q4 2018 research plans. Given how long Vendor Briefing lead times are, we’d rather squeal now :-) So:

  1. DECEPTION: We will update our 2016 “Applying Deception Technologies and Techniques to Improve Threat Detection and Response” (update)
  2. DECEPTION: We will create a new deception technology comparison of most visible vendors (NEW).
  3. NTA / Network Traffic Analysis and Network Forensics: We will cover practices related to modern network security analytics, various modes of traffic analysis, use of traffic data for detection and response, etc (NEW)

There you have it. If you are an NTA, NFT or related vendor or a deception vendor, you know what to do.
