FLAIM - History


Work on log anonymization began in 2004 at the NCSA. At first this was for anonymizing logs in-house to share with the SIFT group. Soon there was a need for more powerful anonymization and anonymization of different types of logs. CANINE was created to anonymize and convert between multiple formats of NetFlows. This was a Java GUI based tool. Later, Scrub-PA was created to anonymize Process Accounting logs. Scrub-PA was based on the Java code used for CANINE. The development of both of these tools were funded under the Office of Naval Research NCASSR research center through the SLAGEL project.

It was quickly realized that building one-off tools for each new log format was not the way to go. Also, the earlier tools were limited in that they could not be scripted from the command line. It was decided that a new, modular command line based UNIX tool was needed. Because speed was also a concern, this tool need to be written in C++. With the successful acquisition of a Cyber Trust grant from the National Science Foundation, the LAIM Working Group was formed at the NCSA. From this project headed by the PI, Adam Slagell, FLAIM was developed to overcome these limitations of CANINE and Scrub-PA. The first public version of FLAIM, 0.4., was released on July 23, 2006.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The history of men’s opposition to women’s emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    In history as in human life, regret does not bring back a lost moment and a thousand years will not recover something lost in a single hour.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    To summarize the contentions of this paper then. Firstly, the phrase ‘the meaning of a word’ is a spurious phrase. Secondly and consequently, a re-examination is needed of phrases like the two which I discuss, ‘being a part of the meaning of’ and ‘having the same meaning.’ On these matters, dogmatists require prodding: although history indeed suggests that it may sometimes be better to let sleeping dogmatists lie.
