January HRSUG Meeting Reminder

I'd like to remind everyone that the January meeting of the Hampton Roads Snort Users Group (HRSUG) will be held this Wednesday, January 11th at 7:00PM. This will be an important meeting, since we will open the nominations for the positions of Chair and Vice Chair. These are light-duty positions, mostly consisting of filling out the library's reservation sheets every month to get the meeting room and helping to arrange for a presentation. Please consider nominating yourself or another member for one of these positions.

As for a technical presentation, I will be demoing sguil, an open source Network Security Monitoring (NSM) tool. Sguil incorporates NIDS information (snort), network session data and packet logging into a single analyst console/research tool. I'll be showing how sguil can help you save time, save money and improve your detection program at the same time. Part of the presentation details exactly how I used sguil to investigate an attempted WMF exploit being delivered by popup ads. If the Internet connection works out, we can even do a live demo.

Location details are below. Hope to see you there!
