Chimera Language

It was great seeing everyone that was able to attend the Bro workshop.

One tidbit that I wanted to sneak into my talk but didn't get a chance to was that Reservoir is a coauthor of a paper with the NSA that was presented today at the USENIX Security Conference about Chimera, a language and compiler for network traffic cyber security analytics. The interesting bits to the Bro community is that the compiler compiles down into Bro language. Chimera is a declarative language with semantics similar to SQL.

We have a copy of the paper and a preliminary language specification up on
There's a preliminary compiler based on the specification which we will be releasing to the community over the next year.
