July 16th and 24th: Community Meeting and Webinar Announcement

Posted · Add Comment

This month we’ll meet our community in two different events:

  • When: Thursday, July 16th, 16:00 CET / 10 AM EST
    What: Live community meeting
    Where: Discord. You can read more here how to join on the public ntop voice channel for this live event.
    Abstract: Recently we have started to use discord as platform for interacting with our community in addition to telegram. The advantage of discord is the ability to combine text/voice/screen sharing so that we want to make an experiment, meet our users, let discuss with them, provide support. The idea is to have an informal discussion with our users in an informal way (no webinar format).
  • When: Friday, July 24th, 16:00 CET / 10 AM EST
    Webinar Title: How to Write an ntopng Plugin for Flow Risks Analysis
    Where: Microsoft Teams
    Abstract: Recently, we have introduced the “Risk Factor” in nDPI, a new way to analyse traffic and simultaneously detect risks associated to each flow. Risks include, but are not limited to, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS), SQL injections (SQLi), Remote Code Execution (RCE) and issues with the TLS. In this workshop, we will see how to create an ntopng Lua plugin which leverages the nDPI “Risk Factor” to generate alerts opportunely update the ‘score’ indicator of compromise for hosts and flows. Intended audience is practitioners with minimal scripting skills. By the end of the workshop, participants will have sufficient skills and understanding necessary to extend ntopng with custom plugins.
