SAN FRANCISCO, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ELK stack and related tools are increasingly important components of the information security arsenal, since they enable enterprises to make sense of the vast amounts of data needed to detect and prevent cyberattacks. And to help InfoSec pros make the most of those powerful ELK stack tools, Peerlyst (https://www.peerlyst.com) presents a comprehensive list of resources compiled by Martin Boller (@martinboller), a cybersecurity architect with more than 25 years of experience at companies like Olivetti, Compaq, HP, and Microsoft.
So what is ELK? It's an acronym for a collection of three open-source products:
- Elasticsearch, a NoSQL database based on the Lucene search engine
- Logstash, a log pipeline tool that accepts inputs from various sources, executes an array of transformations, and exports the data to various targets
- Kibana, a visualization layer that works on top of Elasticsearch
Boller's post, entitled "Security Monitoring and Attack Detection with Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana," provides an exhaustive list of ELK stack information and tools, including basic, advanced, and paid resources. He closes his post by opening up the discussion so that others can chime in with nominations of their own—the kind of information-sharing and crowdsourcing that's characteristic of the Peerlyst community of information security professionals.
Boller's library of ELK stack resources—and thousands of other security tips—can be found exclusively on Peerlyst:
