Ourmon Networm Monitoring and Anomaly Detection System

Jim Binkley <> | Date: 2006/3 | License: BSD
Ourmon is a statistically oriented open-source network monitoring and anomaly detection system. It may be regarded as an open source equivalent of SNMP RMON II. It is based on promiscuous mode packet collection on Ethernet (typically) interfaces. Ourmon does not collect all the packets because one principle design goal is to extract signal from noise, and not store all the noise in a giant bag under the assumption that you can look at it "later" (there is no later). Instead it attempts to find important data and summarize it. Data is displayed on the web via pictures or reports. Features include RRDTOOL graphs built from user-defined BPF expressions, topn flow lists, topn ports, topn synning IP hosts, top UDP error makers, top scanners, and IRC channels and hosts. Ourmon's anomaly detection features include TCP and UDP anomalous hosts, IRC "evil" networks (botnets) and a lovely graph that displays the number of remote and local scanners. TCP data also includes information about P2P using hosts, and soon will allow traffic classification via user-suppled PCRE pattern tags. ... [home] [demo]
