AlienVault Open Source SIEM (OSSIM) is a complete Security Management solution that detects and profiles attacks, and provides a comprehensive, intelligent Security Management platform and toolset.

The entire solution is composed of open source distributions including all seamlessly integrated tools, and the security management platform. The OSSIM project was created and is currently coordinated by the founders of AlienVault.

This is a great application - works with tons of other systems such as snort and pfsense and others to make sense of your security on the network.

We have it running - and love it - however thinking it might help the community @ large.
I second the request for OSSIM.

Have had nothing but problems recently with the ISO from AlienVault, usually some kernel panic, or other nonsense during install.
I think Proxmox does a good job of managing its own logs. However I think the logs are copied between all nodes, so 4 nodes = 4x the log files. Also, there is an implicit trust relationship between all nodes, meaning that a credentialed user on one node could destroy the logs on all nodes.

Not sure what that has to do with having an OSSIM Virtual Appliance for Proxmox.

Having an OSSIM Virtual Appliance for Proxmox would make it very easy to install a OSSIM VM and then use OSSEC across all VMs in a cluster.
I meant that the OSSIM would be a standalone log repository, in addition to all its other features. Meaning that an agent would be deployed on each proxmox node, in addition to all the VMs. Do you run an OSSIM in a VM?
