Title:
Building a Time Machine for Efficient Recording and Retrieval of High-Volume Network Traffic 
Abstract:
There are times when it would be extraordinarily convenient to record the entire contents of a high-volume network traffic stream, in order to later "travel back in time" and inspect activity that has only become interesting in retrospect. Two examples are security forensics---determining just how an attacker compromised a given machine---and network trouble-shooting, such as inspecting the precursors to a fault after the fault. We describe the design and implementation of a Time Machine to effi...    »
