NAME

Net::Silk - Interface to the SiLK network flow library

DESCRIPTION

Net::Silk is a perl binding to the SiLK network flow library. SiLK is self-described as:

  SiLK, the System for Internet-Level Knowledge, is a collection of
  traffic analysis tools developed by the CERT Network Situational
  Awareness Team (CERT NetSA) to facilitate security analysis of large
  networks. The SiLK tool suite supports the efficient collection,
  storage, and analysis of network flow data, enabling network security
  analysts to rapidly query large historical traffic data sets. SiLK is
  ideally suited for analyzing traffic on the backbone or border of a
  large, distributed enterprise or mid-sized ISP.

The SiLK suite can be found here.
