VisITMeta and SIMU have been presented at GraMSec 2015 in Verona
During the Second International Workshop on Graphical Models for Security (GraMSec, http://www.gramsec.uni.lu), held on July 13th 2015 in Verona, a member of the Trust@HsH research group from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hanover presented the paper titled "Integrated Visualization of Network Security Metadata from Heterogeneous Data Sources". This work included the project VisITMeta mainly, which in the project SIMU has been used for the visualisation of metadata.
The paper depicts the general idea behind VisITMeta, a successfully finished research project aimed at visualizing IF-MAP metadata graphs. Within the outlook on future work, the integration of VisITMeta into the SIMU project was explained, where the visualization of metadata graphs is used to allow a better understanding of identified incidents.
The workshop itself, co-located with the 28th IEEE Computer Security Foundations Symposium, mostly dealt with attack graphs and attack trees, used to evaluate possible ways of attacks.
The main intersections with the results of the VisITMeta and SIMU projects are on the layer of data collection, where similar methods are used to get the infrastructure information about clients, servers and services.
