But the first change for user is that authentication and user management is now by default. Scirius is now multi user and features three level of permissions from read-only to superuser.

Another new feature is the display of graphics in some page. They are using Elasticsearch data. For example, the next screenshot is showing detail of a rule. A graph has been added to show the activity for that specific rules:

The interface is now more responsive as asynchronous requests are used to interact with Elasticsearch. This guarantee a responsive interface even if your Elasticsearch is slow.

SELKS user can upgrade to Scirius 1.0-beta1 via apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. Please note that the default user/password on SELKS is selks-user/selks-user. Do not forget to change it after first login.
