This allows us to frequently release updated ISOs shipping the latest KDE software.

In a world of myriad incompatible distributions, popular apps are typically limited to one or two of the most popular distributions, and the creation of new apps is stifled.

SELKS 3.0 Screenshot Tour

The main change in SELKS 3.0 is the switch to the latest generation of the Elastic stack. On user side this means Kibana 3 has been replaced by Kibana 4. And this really means a lot. Kibana 4 is a complete rewrite of Kibana 3 being non backward compatible on data side. So, our team had to redo from scratch all dashboards and visualizations. The result is a new set of 11 ready-to-use dashboards and a lot of visualizations that you can use to build your own dashboards. On the ruleset management side, SELKS 3.0 comes with Scirius Community Edition 1.1.10 that has support for advanced Suricata feature like xbits.
