Network Security: Experiment of Network Health Analysis At An ISP
Perpetus Jacques Houngbo
Pages - 1 - 10     |    Revised - 31-1-2015     |    Published - 28-2-2015
Volume - 9   Issue - 1    |    Publication Date - January / February 2015  Table of Contents
Network Monitoring, Information Security, Netflow, Nfdump, Nfsen, Worm, Bandwidth, Threat, Bot Botnet, Trojan, Behavior Analysis.
This paper presents the findings of an analysis performed at an internet service provider. Based on netflow data collected and analyzed using nfdump, it helped assess how healthy is the network of an Internet Service Providers (ISP). The findings have been instrumental in reflection about reshaping the network architecture. And they have also demonstrated the need for consistent monitoring system.
