Gibson3d open source security software

Posted on Wednesday, July 27th, 2011 in code, open source, security by the machinegeek

Looking forward to the upcoming Defcon 19 conference, we note that Gibson open source software will be used there to monitor traffic.

Dan Klinedinst, the project owner, writes:

Some of you have seen the “Gibson” software, which models a network in 3D and shows security events on that network in real time. The code, as well as some presentations, videos and pathetically little documentation are at gibson3d.org. I’ve been invited to use Gibson to monitor the network traffic at Defcon (defcon.org) in August and display it in real time in the contest area. If you’re not familiar with Defcon, it’s the largest hacker convention in the U.S. and has been described as “the most hostile network on Earth.

Check out the Gibson project webpage.
