Figure 1-9 shows a sketch of a graph visualization we constructed that used an interface to show only links over particular time periods. By isolating time periods, the viewer could identify event sequences, potential related events, and potential collaborators— symptomatic of a more organized attack. Also, different kinds of attacks have different visual signatures that stand out when viewing the patterns in a particular time period. 16 PART 1 Overview NOTE FIGURE 1-9: This graph visualization shows potential anomalies with connections between internal computers (inside) and external computers (around perimeter).

The distance between any pair of nodes indicates the strength of the correlation (close nodes have a strong relationship). Because there are many items, we turned off all the links to keep the display clean. Perhaps not surprisingly, there is a strong correlation between celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Felicia Day, and Taylor Swift. Inverse correlations are on the flip side in this visualization, and perhaps unsurprisingly, Margaret Atwood and Richard Florida are inversely correlated to the pop stars.
