suricata - Next Generation Intrusion Detection and Prevention Tool
suricata is a network Intrusion Detection System (IDS). It is based on
rules (and is fully compatible with snort rules) to detect a variety of
attacks / probes by searching packet content.
This new Engine supports Multi-Threading, Automatic Protocol Detection
(IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, HTTP, TLS, FTP and SMB), Gzip Decompression, Fast
IP Matching and coming soon hardware acceleration on CUDA and OpenCL
It supports acquiring packets through NFQUEUE, PCAP (live or offline)
Use configuration file config_file
Sniff packets on interface.
Read the tcpdump-formatted file tcpdump-file. This will cause
Suricata to read and process the file fed to it. This is useful
for offline analysis.
Sniff packets sent by the kernel through NFQUEUE. This allows
running Suricata in inline mode (IPS) for packets captured by
iptables using the NFQUEUE target.
Path to the signatures file.
Path to the default log directory.
-D Run as daemon
Enable fatal failure on signature init error.
