Zeek, and Splunk, and Alertus, oh My
Abstract: WashU’s Alertus system is a communication tool that is used to share info with every user on campus during an emergency. Alertus clients are very chatty and include a lot of useful information when they phone home. Zeek sees this, so we looked for ways to use that data in Splunk. We’ll look at some ways we added Alertus user data to Splunk searches to track down machines on campus.
Virtual ZeekWeek 2020 is free to attend, but registration is required.
