Network security has become an essential part of corporate IT strategy, and safeguarding your network’s nooks and crannies can be timely and expensive. This book provides information about using free Open Source tools to build and manage an Intrusion Detection System.
This book provides detailed information about using SNORT as an IDS and Apache, MySQL, PHP, and ACID to analyze intrusion data.
The book contains:
- Custom scripts.
- Real-life examples for SNORT.
- To-the-point information about installing SNORT IDS so readers can build and run their sophisticated intrusion detection systems.
SNORT is your network’s packet sniffer that monitors network traffic in real-time, scrutinizing each packet closely to detect a dangerous payload or suspicious anomalies.NSS Group, a European network security testing organization, tested SNORT and intrusion detection system (IDS) products from 15 major vendors, including Cisco, Computer Associates, and Symantec. According to NSS, SNORT, the sole Open Source freeware product tested, outperformed the proprietary products.
