OSSIM, AlienVault’s Open Source Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) product, provides you with a feature-rich open source SIEM complete with event collection, normalization and correlation. Launched by security engineers because of the lack of available open source products, OSSIM was created specifically to address the reality many security professionals face: A SIEM, whether it is open source or commercial, is virtually useless without the basic security controls necessary for security visibility.

The topics we would like to cover are :

  1. SOC / Monitoring
  2. SIEM Architecture
  3. OSSIM Installation
  4. Device Log Forwarding towards OSSIM
  5. Parsing Logs
  6. Mapping With MYSQL in OSSIM Server
  7. OSSIM Console / Dashboard General Description
  8. Writing Correlation Rules / Directives
  9. Triggering Alarms
  10. OSSEC Configuration ( Optional )
