Prevent your network safe from attacks by analyzing data. via dark matters
A little Raspberry Pi Network Access Storage (NAS) will provide you with the evidence you need to track down or even prevent an attack through data analysis.
Take a Raspberry Pi and turn it into a NAS with any of the four USB ports the microcomputer offers, plus the Ethernet connection. You can easily plug in a powered USB hub and add an array of harddrives for a couple hundred bucks, with the drives being the most expensive part of this file server. Store your flow data on these drives separate from the rest of the network. You can even call the NAS something fun like “Malware Cache” or “Inventory Logs 1991-2008”. Nobody will bother to look at either of those locations. Remember though, to ensure its authenticity in a court of law you need to encrypt this information and run a MD5 hash.
