We are pleased to announce the latest NST release: NST13 (v2.13.0) which is based on Fedora13 using Linux Kernel: 188.8.131.52-56.fc13. The release has focused on building a framework for the geolocation and rendering of network entities including the management and configuration of back-end geolocation methods and database repositories.
Here are some of the highlights for this release:
* Created a framework for geolocating network entities with NST.
* Manage and configure the geolocation methods and database repositories.
* Geolocate hosts discovered by ntop. These hosts can be plotted on a world map as a bitmap image or viewed in Google Earth with supporting network traffic information for each host detected.
* Geolocate IPv4 Address Conversations from a network packet capture. These conversations can be displayed on a world map as a bitmap image or viewed in Google Earth. This can be done from the NST WUI Single or Multi-Tap Network Packet Capture decode page.
* Manage, view and schedule geolocated information using the NST WUI.
* The NST WUI can be used to geolocate traceroute information. The results can be viewed using Google Earth.
* The NST WUI can be used to geolocate data collected by Kismet and the results can be viewed in Google Earth.
* The NST WUI can be used to quickly setup and manage Subversion (SVN) repositories. Each with a corresponding Trac Wiki.
* This release includes both NST 32 bit (i686) and 64 bit (x86_64) builds as well as an NST 32 bit and 64 bit RPM repository.
* Many new applications have been added to this distribution release. Previous existing networking and security applications have been updated to their latest revision.
