Things have slowed a bit around the workplace of late. It's kind of nice, as it gives me a chance to reflect. Yesterday, I was thinking about how far the network monitoring/network traffic analysis community has come in the past decade. Ten years ago, large portions of the information security community were content to implement signature-based detection methods and believe they were covered. Nowadays, people en masse are awakening to the reality that the traffic transiting a network needs to be examined with an analytical eye. This is a wonderful thing, as us die hard analysts can now share our passion with an audience that is ready to hear the message.
