D4 core version 0.2 has been released

New version released - v0.2 of D4 core

After the initial design and implementation of the D4 protocol, we released a new version of the D4 core server software which includes the following changes:

  • Support for IPv6 has been added;
  • Compression with gzip has been added to the type (1:pcap) analyzer;
  • New worker type (8:dnscap). It pushes dnscap lines in a redis queue towards the appropriate analyzer for further processing (e.g. used in the Passive DNS analyzer);
  • Manage black-lists from the sensor management interface per CIDR block;
  • Custom filter per sensor is now supported;
  • Many improvements in the sensor management and monitoring.
