I think the short answer to your question is no, we do not have any
publicly-available, ready-made scripts that will use a SiLK data
repository to answer these sorts of questions.

The Analysis Pipeline
<http://tools.netsa.cert.org/analysis-pipeline/index.html> is a
separate tool that is designed to process SiLK data as it arrives
and send alerts for unusual conditions (such as receiving traffic
from an IP on a watchlist or processing data volume over a certain

You may find some analysis techniques mentioned in documents on the
SEI web site <http://resources.sei.cmu.edu/library/results.cfm>.
Unfortunately, often times you will that that the technique is
mentioned but the details about how it works are not available.

I hope that helps.

Dear Mr. Mark,

Thank you, you got what I mean
But what I am looking for is plugins to detect spoofing for example, or DDoS
Are you aware of such developed plugins?

A list of C plug-ins that may be used with the SiLK analysis tools is
documented at http://tools.netsa.cert.org/silk/docs.html#analysis-plugins

The silk/src/plugins directory contains some additional plug-ins for use in
the analysis tools which may serve as example code for building your own.
See the silk-plugin[1] manual page for more information on creating plug-ins
from C.

See the silkpython[2] manual page for building plug-ins from python.

There are two plug-ins that work with rwflowpack.  Their source code is
under the silk/site directory, and their manual pages are
packlogic-twoway[3] and packlogic-generic[4].

If I have misunderstood what you mean my plugins, I am sorry and I ask that
you clarify what you mean.

I wonder if you can provide me with a list of plugins that were developed
for SiLK along with their documentation

Thank you
