Why spend thousands of dollars on a commercial IDS when there’s Snort? Now Snort.org webmaster Brian Caswell shows how to make the most of it -- including the latest 2.1 upgrades.
Caswell covers the entire Snort planning, deployment, and management lifecycle. Integrating Snort into your security architecture. Using it as a packet sniffer and packet logger for network traffic debugging. Using and updating rules. Using Barnyard to manage Snort’s output. Analyzing intrusions. Evaluating (and possibly implementing) active response.
A nice touch: “notes from the underground” that reveal how crackers attack IDS systems, and what you can do about it. Snort 2.1.2’s on CD-ROM, plus several complementary tools. You could download those. But you’re unlikely to find Caswell’s depth of knowledge anywhere else. Bill Camarda
