Accepting submissions till 06 Dec 2021, 11:30 PM

Observability, anomaly detection and deep defense is the cycle for early detection of attacks and network breaches.

Speakers from FreeBSD community, CRED, AWS, Datadog, Farsight Securities and other organizations will share their experiences with processes and tools for tightening the loops of network security and anomaly detection, and how to build robust observability workflows.
The conference will cover topics ranging from:

  1. Network Security Monitoring (NSM)
  2. Unified approach to observability
  3. VPN connectivity and unusual traffic patterns
  4. Response Policy Zones (RPZ)
  5. Network behaviour analysis and early indicators of attack

The conference is open for participation to the following practitioners.

  1. SRE teams.
  2. Observability geeks.
  3. Engineers who work with Cloud infrastructure.
  4. Network security engineers.
  5. DevSecOps teams and practitioners.

Packets don't lie - Network Security Monitoring (NSM) for the masses

Prevention ultimately fails. With this uncomfortable premise, everyone gets breached. The circumstances for networks become grave when one looks at defending networks from the security 1% lens. According to Richard Bejtlich, more

Achieving a High Level of Network Inspection with VPC Traffic Mirroring and Suricata

COVID has hit everyone and affected people in their own way. As far as organizations are concerned, employees have been asked to work from home (WFH), and because many industries are now working remotely, the pattern of user connections to the enterprise network has turned upside down. Instead of most users connecting locally, now most are connecting remotely. And for allowing employees to access… more

Where is my traffic going? And other tough questions of hybrid network monitoring

Modern application architectures have evolved networking beyond physical connections. IP addresses are no longer sufficient descriptors of components like virtual machines, containers, and cloud services. Effectively managing complex, distributed environments requires an understanding of how these components interact, which cannot be obtained with traditional network monitoring tools. more

Knowledge vs. Faith: How to Use Observable Data to Make Better Defence Decisions

Over the past years we increasingly relied on someone’s else judgement and opinion of what is bad or good on the Internet. And whilst very often the things changed the scores may not, leading to false positives or complicated and obscure risk-score structures. Also, to form an opinion, one need to observe the behaviour for some time to cast judgement. What can we do in the meantime? Knowledge abo… more

What is happening in my network? Network egress observability at Dream11.

One of the many challenges a SRE/Devops/Cloud Security Officer has to face in his or her job is to know at any time what is going on in the cloud egress network. They must perform continuous analyses and checks to determine which cloud systems communicate which each other , which cloud system are sending data outside and which protocols are they employed. What about the data that is transferred t… more

API Security powered by Deep Learning

Spherical Defense is working on applying research from Cambridge University on representation learning and Natural Language Processing (NLP) to web application / API security. We learn the baseline in an unsupervised manner of normal JSON request headers and payloads, and can detect anomalies. We learn continuously as the application changes and reduce false positives. We can 1) detect anomalies … more

Anatomy of an attack

Network behaviour analysis often leads to early indicators of attack, however, network behaviour needs to be augmented with additional data points like user behaviour, data flow characteristics, threat intelligence, anonymous API calls to identify and establish threat patterns more
