LogChat Podcast 4: Anton Chuvakin and Andrew Hay Talk Logs

LogChat Podcast is back again - and now on iTunes as well! Everybody knows that all this world needs is a podcast devoted to logs, logging and log management (as well as SIEM, incident response and other fun related subjects).

And now you have it AGAIN with edition #4 - through the sheer combined genius of Andrew Hay and myself, Anton Chuvakin.

Our topic today is log management IN the cloud: in the cloud –not for the cloud, NIST cloud definitions and hosted log management, log management AND SIEM in the cloud, real-time correlation in the cloud – is it possible, hybrid solutions, sensitivity of log data, barriers to market entry,  log collection for the cloud, etc.
All that + how not to anger Chris Hoff with your cloud log management tool Smile

Some administrative items:
  1. No, we are still not ready with transcribing and, yes, we still want it.  I did try Amazon Mechanical Turk, but it didn't turn to be as inexpensive as people claimed. If you have ideas for a good AND cheap transcribing service, we are all ears.
  2. We plan for this to happen every three weeks - recorded on Wednesday, posted on Thursday. However, due to our work schedules, irregularities will occur all the time….
  3. Please suggest topics to cover as well - even though we are not likely to run out of ideas for a few years.
  4. Any other feedback is HUGELY useful. Is it too long? Too loud? Too rant-y? Too technical? Not enough jokes? Too few mentions of the "cloud"? Feedback please!
And now, in all its glory - the podcast: link to #4 MP3 is here [MP3], RSS feed is here - it is also on iTunes now.

Enjoy THE LogChat!
