From lolly pops to afterglow

For those of you who are as many in years as some of the ISC handlers, you may remember that Kojak star Telly Savalas had a singing career as well as one playing a lollypop sucking cop in New York. He had a UK number 1 hit for the song "If" which had the immortal lyrics

"If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?"

Well in the security world we are following the lyrics of David Gates and using visualisation as a powerful technique in security log analysis.

The Davix Live CD distribution has been released and it contains a wide selection of security tools which are categorised in the Capture, Process and Visualise groups.

If you are interested in the power of Visualisation techniques in security analysis, it is well worth a look.
