Intrusion detection systems

Wednesday, 24 November 2004, 1:48 PM EST

This month, I'll begin the foray into Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). There are several decent IDS projects that run on Linux, one of the most popular being Snort. Snort is a flexible tool that can be used for packet sniffing, packet logging, or network intrusion detection.
