Last week we have talked at ITNOG6 where we presented a report of the lessons learnt while monitoring ISP and service providers networks. This work is the result of one year of activities carried on with some of our users who provided feedback and new ideas.
In summary we concluded that cybersecurity is a hot topic for these users and that DDoS mitigation is not enough for keeping a network healthy, but that they need tools able to both collect flows and packets, and implement ETA (Encrypted Traffic Analysis) as now most Internet traffic is encrypted.
Here you can find the presentation slides in case you want to read more about this topic. ntop acknowledges HostingSolutions for support and providing network playground to develop our tools.
