More Info
SEC is an open source and platform independent event correlation tool that was designed to fill the gap between commercial event correlation systems and homegrown solutions that usually comprise a few simple shell scripts. SEC accepts input from regular files, named pipes, and standard input, and can thus be employed as an event correlator for any application that is able to write its output events to a file stream. The SEC configuration is stored in text files as rules, each rule specifying an event matching condition, an action list, and optionally a Boolean expression whose truth value decides whether the rule can be applied at a given moment. Regular expressions, Perl subroutines, etc. are used for defining event matching conditions. SEC can produce output events by executing user-specified shell scripts or programs (e.g., snmptrap or mail), by writing messages to pipes or files, and by various other means.
