Open Source Graph Analysis and Visualization by Jeff Kunkle.

From the description:

Lumify is a relatively new open source platform for big data analysis and visualization, designed to help organizations derive actionable insights from the large volumes of diverse data flowing through their enterprise. Utilizing popular big data tools like Hadoop, Accumulo, and Storm, it ingests and integrates many kinds of data, from unstructured text documents and structured datasets, to images and video. Several open source analytic tools (including Tika, OpenNLP, CLAVIN, OpenCV, and ElasticSearch) are used to enrich the data, increase its discoverability, and automatically uncover hidden connections. All information is stored in a secure graph database implemented on top of Accumulo to support cell-level security of all data and metadata elements. A modern, browser-based user interface enables analysts to explore and manipulate their data, discovering subtle relationships and drawing critical new insights. In addition to full-text search, geospatial mapping, and multimedia processing, Lumify features a powerful graph visualization supporting sophisticated link analysis and complex knowledge representation.

The full story of SecureGraph isn’t here but the slides are enough to tempt me into finding out more.


I first saw this in a tweet by Stephen Mallette.

From the webpage:

SecureGraph is an API to manipulate graphs, similar to Blueprints. Unlike Blueprints, every Secure graph method requires authorizations and visibilities. SecureGraph also supports multivalued properties as well as property metadata.

The SecureGraph API was designed to be generic, allowing for multiple implementations. The only implementation provided currently is built on top of Apache Accumulo for data storage and Elasticsearch for indexing.

According to the readme file, definitely “beta” software but interesting software none the less.

Are you using insecure graph software?

Might be time to find out!
