K. Abdullah, Scaling and Visualizing Network Data to Facilitate in Intrusion Detection Tasks ,” Dissertation, Georgia Institute of Technology, April 2006.

Summary: Current practices of textual and textual image representation of intrusion detection data are not efficient in identifying potential attacks on the network. This problem worsens as networks grow larger, IDS data increase follows. Using graphical and visualization techniques, this data can be processed and analyzed much more efficiently by the user.
