The main aim of this project is to research how the Domain Name Service (DNS) functions and how it can be monitored and used for security threat intelligence. The problem with DNS is that many organisations do not monitor or log DNS data. These problems are known to cyber criminals who take full advantage of this and use DNS maliciously.

A solution to these problems is to develop a dashboard application that graphically displays DNS network traffic data. This solution reduces the need for logging DNS data on servers and can be used to monitor security threats in real time.
