How it works

IVRE uses data from other sources like Argus, Bro, Masscan, Nmap, zmap, and others. It pulls in the data and stores it in a MongoDB instance for further analysis. Network flows (flowdata) can be used as well, in which it uses a Neo4j database. The data can be extracted and displayed via command-line, web interface, or the Python API.
