Monitoring Vehicle CANBus Activity with Gravwell

Apr 18, 2019 2:26:29 PM / by Corey Thuen posted in OT Analytics

0 Comments

Before founding Gravwell, I was doing quite a bit of vehicle cybersecurity. Lately I haven't had much opportunity for that kind of fun -- turns out founding a company is time consuming work. Today is a throwback Thursday, however, as I'll be presenting on CANBus and vehicle security at the local DEFCON meetup. We didn't build Gravwell for car hacking but I gotta say, having Gravwell years ago would have made my life a lot easier…

For the 2018 Super Computing Conference (SC18, held in Dallas, TX), Gravwell provided our analytics platform to the Network Security team. These brave souls were responsible for cyber security on a network consisting of $52 million in contributed hardware, software, and services plus 4.02 Terabits per second of external capacity. This means that not only does the SCinet Network Security team need to protect SCinet from the world, it needs to protect the world from SCinet.

Huge Gravwell updates today!

Thanks for your patience during this short period of radio silence, but it’s been for good reason. Today we’re happy to announce Gravwell version 3 which comes with a whole slew of delicious features and improvements.

The 2018 development year was primarily focused on improving search and ingest performance, scalability, and stability. We’ve made tremendous strides on this front and I’m excited to talk briefly about those here and in greater detail during the coming weeks. Our 2019 has a strong focus on improving out-of-the-box functionality -- keep reading for more info about the update and exciting plans for this year.

Fighting Unpredictable Analytics Costs With All-You-Can-Ingest Pricing

One of the biggest complaints that’s heard across the industry is that of cost. “Too expensive” or “untenable pricing scale” are things we have been hearing from colleagues at conferences and on forums for years. Years! Yet we’re still stuck with this extremely frustrating pricing model that disincentivizes people from using the very tool they purchased. What do I mean? Let’s dive in.

Gravwell in the ICS Village and announcing Nozomi Integration

Jun 7, 2018 6:11:20 PM / by Corey Thuen posted in OT Analytics, Integrations

We're excited to join with Nozomi Networks in announcing our integration partnership which was piloted in the ICS Village at the RSA Sandbox in San Francisco earlier this year. Attendees at RSA were also able to see the first glimpse of the newly unveiled ICS Village. For those unfamiliar with conference villages, the idea is to create a hands-on learning environment for security professionals to learn, hack, or break equipment and software that they may not experience on a day-to-day basis. The Gravwell founders have a long history in the ICS space and we believe in the village mission as we think that ICS/SCADA (more so than most industries) could benefit from some disruption and fresh ideas. The ICS Village can be found at many events this year including DEFCON and EnergySec (full event schedule can be found at https://www.icsvillage.com/events).

It’s Thanksgiving Weekend in America and that means most people have acknowledged the blessings in their lives and are gearing up for something America does better than anyone: consumerism. I had a bit of down time and thought I’d do something else America is good at: Freedom Fighting.
