In this paper, we present a visual analytics tool that visualizes network host behavior through positional changes in a two dimensional space using a force-directed graph layout algorithm. The tool s interaction capabilities allow for visual exploration of network traffic over time and are demonstrated using netflow data as well as IDS alerts. Automatic accentuation of hosts with highly variable traffic results in fast hypothesis generation and confirmation of suspicious host behavior. By triggering the behavior graph from the HNMap tool, we were able to monitor more abstract network entities.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Keim, Daniel A.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Meier, Lorenz</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Mansmann, Florian</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Meier, Lorenz</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:contributor>Mansmann, Florian</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2008</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: VizSEC 2007: proceedings of the Workshop on Visualization for Computer Security / John R.
