A new document available in the SANS Reading Room:
“This paper will explore Microsoftâ€™s EVTX log format and Windows Event Logging framework. The EVTX data stream and structure will be defined as a basis for the Windows Event Logging framework and log subscription components that can be used to collect and correlate logs in a complex Windows-based environment.”
This is a must read if you have to work with Windows environments (collecting and correlating logs). The document is available here.
