True, though they do contract out some of these tasks to cleared third party defence-focused organisations, who definitely DO pay market rates.

With a focus on graduate recruitment, a culture of esprit de corps, access to awesomly cool geeky tech stuff, and good working conditions, and they tend to hang on to people for a fair bit longer than the government pay grades they are saddled with, would normally imply.

The brain drain does happen eventually.. but that's government, unfortunately.

Yes; some very good people who evaluate products for use within the Oz government and Defence:

However, the process is usually long, often expensive, and generally targets a particular software/hardware combination; bump your version number, and there's potentially a fairly significant re-evaluation required.

Huawei could take advantage of this program now, but would either need to front up some dough, or have a sponsor to guide them through it.

The Snare/Epilog open source agents will get you part of the way there; they'll handle the log forwarding side for you. They're coded over the ditch in Oz.

Kiwi syslog might be another step in the process; locally made and supported in NZ; it'll manage the collection side of things, but not the analysis.

From there... sorry - I only have commercial stuff to suggest for the analysis side, so I'll let others bring up some options.
