High performance data networks such as Science DMZ networks are being deployed in research institutions all over the nation to provide high speed big data transfer among intra and inter institutional collaborations. The amount of network data generated by such networks is very costly to store and/or process to provide network security, network situational awareness, and network forensics. These research networks can not rely their security on traditional firewalls because firewalls tend deter the data transfer performance.Visualization analytics play a major role in the detection of events in big data as it has been in network visualizations. To help with the analysis, we present an API, that uses SILK as its base, with functions to filter network flows through a web interface and feed the output to web visualizations thereby (1) giving the power to non shell savvy system administrators to manage network flows data from the web, (2) providing a bridge between the processing of big network data and the visualization analytics researchers, (3) providing network analysis as a web service in the cloud.
