installing snortsam on my Snort IDS machine
Posted on 2011-09-07
I currently have snort installed on my network as an IDS. I need to figure out how to turn this IDS into an IPS. I am looking into snortsam for this. I don't want to use snort inline because I can't restructure my network. I like snortsam because it works as an application from what I reading. I was on snortsam's website and saw it was compatible with the Cisco Pix, but it didn't say anything about the ASA. I have a Cisco ASA5520. Does snortsam work with the Cisco ASA? Anyone with snortsam experience, do you like the performance of snortsam? Can you point me in a direction of some clear directions to get snortsam to work. I would like to install snortsam on the same machine as snort. I am using ubuntu 10.04. Thanks.
