Last week we met with Martin Roesch, the creator of Snort, the de facto standard for intrusion detection/prevention. Presented here is the entire story of Snort in his words that covers seven years of development that made this tool one of the most important security software titles ever developed.

During his talk you'll get all the details on how Snort was initially conceived as well as how it is expected to develop further now after Check Point acquired Sourcefire.

You'll discover many technical details related to the development of Snort since its inception in 1998 up to today as well as some details of upcoming features.

Among other things Martin talks about all the major Snort releases, the founding of Sourcefire, the enhancements added to the last versions of Snort, new technology that presents a self-tuning engine, and much more.
