Friends, this is some cool tech… Carnegie Mellon’s CyLab Security and Privacy Institute is touting research that provides visualization of the reams of network traffic data (i.e., IP addresses and time stamps) that IT and security analysts typically examine. This makes it easier to spot DDoS patterns.  “Visualization is one way to change abstract data into pictures, sound, and videos so you can see patterns in a very intuitive way”, so says Senior Systems Scientist Yang Cai of CyLab’s Visual Intelligence Studio.  Check out a demonstration below…
