Logging and processing logs from Windows 7



Windows 7 is pretty good at logging, but what do you do with all those log files? We look at some monitoring tools that can help you get the most out your logging data.

This month, I’m talking about Windows 7. I must admit I spent some time trying to come up with a good security topic related to Windows 7 that I haven’t covered before. I’ve already done cross-platform host-based intrusion detection systems (OSSEC), and I’ll leave IPsec setup with Windows 7 and Linux to someone else. I tried to figure that out once, but gave up and went with a Shrew Soft IPsec client instead.
