*Topic:* The rebirth of openSIMS
http://opensims.sourceforge.netCorrelation, visualization, and
remediation with a network effect

OpenSIMS has a sordid history. The project was originally a way for tying
together the open source tools used for security management into a common
infrastructure. Then the team added a real-time RIA for a new kind of
analysis and visualization of enterprise network security (winning them an
Apple Design Award in 2004). Then out of nowhere the project went dark. Now,
Mando Escamilla (Symbiot/openSIMS) and whurley give you a look at the future
of openSIMS as a services layer and explain why community centric security
is valuable to your enterprise.
