Introduction

I’ll keep this one short. I’ve recently been spending more time with the Bro framework and discovering the power of its scripting language. I had written a PoC script around using entropy to find beacons in network traffic. The script grew and matured over the years, but there eventually became a need to run this against live network traffic and not just logs.

Enjoy the script and commit a change. It’s a little memory heavy at the moment, due to the use of a global hash. This can be resolved by replacing the hash with a tree.
