Graph Drawing for Security Visualization
Abstract. As the number of devices connected to the internet continues to grow rapidly and software systems are being increasingly deployed on the web, security and privacy have become crucial properties for networks and applications. Due the complexity and subtlety of cryptographic methods and protocols, software architects and developers often fail to incorporate security principles in their designs and implementations. Also, most users have minimal understanding of security threats. While several tools for developers, system administrators and security analysts are available, these tools typically provide information in the form of textual logs or tables, which are cumbersome to analyze. Thus, in recent years, the field of security visualization has emerged to provide novel ways to display security-related information so that it is easier to understand. In this work, we give a survey of approaches to the visualization of computer security concepts that use graph drawing techniques....
