Publisher review for Snort

Review by: Sourcefire, Inc
Snort provides you with a high-performance, yet lightweight and flexible rule-based network intrusion detection and prevention system that can also be used as a packet sniffer and logger. With its advanced capabilities and reliability, it is the most deployed IDS / IPS software, widely used in network monitoring applications.

Combining database signatures with anomaly-based scanning, Snort is capable of detecting unwanted intrusions and features real-time analysis and alerts. In order to work properly, the application requires WinPcap, a tool that provides direct packet access, allowing it to read raw network data.

Having a Snort sensor up and running requires solid command line, network protocol functioning and IDS knowledge, thus beginner users might need to take their time to go through the documentation in order to learn how things work.

The application can be used as a packet sniffer and logger, monitoring the network traffic in real-time, displaying the TCP/IP packet headers and recording the packets to a logging directory or a database (MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and ODBC are supported). However, the real power of Snort resides in its intrusion detection capabilities, since it can analyze network traffic and warn you about unusual events, vulnerabilities or exploits.
