Information Security Visualization Contest - hack.lu 2009
Information security visualization plays a vital role in information security especially to ease the interpretation of collected information and take the appropriate action. For the hack.lu 2009 conference, we make a contest to visualize data collected (network and tty captures) in a honeypot. The rules are very simple and you can win a free ticket and the opportunity to talk about your visualization during the hack.lu 2009 conference.
