Zeek part of Microsoft Windows

Το λογισμικό Zeek κυκλοφόρησε για πρώτη φορά το 1998, με άδεια BSD ,και όπως φαίνεται θα υιοθετηθεί από την Microsoft.

Zeek, the open source network security monitoring platform, is integrated into Windows and will "run on more than a billion global endpoints," according to Corelight's announcement.

From Press release by Corelight:

Η Corelight, ο ηγέτης στον εντοπισμό και την απόκριση ανοιχτού δικτύου, ανακοίνωσε σήμερα την ενσωμάτωση του Zeek, της πιο δημοφιλής πλατφόρμας παρακολούθησης ασφάλειας δικτύου ανοιχτού κώδικα στον κόσμο, σαν στοιχείο των Microsoft Windows και Defender for Endpoint. Η ενοποίηση θα βοηθήσει τις ομάδες ασφαλείας να ανταποκρίνονται άμεσα στις πιο δύσκολες επιθέσεις παρέχοντας “σήματα για προηγμένη αναζήτηση απειλών, πλήρη και ακριβή ανακάλυψη συσκευών IoT και πιο ισχυρές δυνατότητες ανίχνευσης και απόκρισης”.

Originally created by Corelight's co-founder and chief scientist, Dr. Vern Paxson, while at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Zeek software transforms network traffic into compact and high-fidelity logs, file content, and behavioral analyzes to accelerate security operations.

Vital funding for Zeek originally came from the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Energy's Office of Science. As adoption increased, Corelight was founded to provide a financial model and a corporate sponsor for the project.

"Microsoft is strongly committed to supporting open source projects and ecosystems," said Rob Lefferts, Microsoft corporate vice president. "We are proud to partner with Zeek and excited to bring this level of network intelligence and monitoring to our customers."

"This is an amazing development for Zeek and its community of contributors and users," said Paxson. “I never imagined that the tool I developed for network monitoring would find wider application in endpoint defense — but that's part of the creative magic of open source development.

"We are grateful for Microsoft's contributions and support, and are excited that the impact of the project and the contributor community will grow so much."

Although the press releases will be from very select to rarely, I said to go ... because sometimes the authors are hiding.
