Repurposing Logs, (Tue, Mar 24th)

Keeping an eye on your logs is critical (really, its number 14 on the SANS critical list of controls: https://www.sans.org/critical-security-controls/control/14 .) Earlier Rob VandenBrink shared some techniques to find nuggets hiding in your logs ( https://isc.sans.edu/forums/diary/Syslog+Skeet+Shooting+Targetting+Real+Problems+in+Event+Logs/19449/ .) Today Im going to share some tricks to squeeze every last bit out of your logs through repurposing logs. I mean repurposing log files, not this: https://www.pinterest.com/dawnreneedavis/repurposed-logs/ . Logs are given their original purpose when programs determine when and how theyre going to record a log entry.
