The Security Onion LiveDVD is a bootable DVD that contains software used for installing, configuring, and testing Intrusion Detection Systems.
What software does it contain?
The Security Onion LiveDVD is based on Xubuntu 10.04 and contains Snort, Suricata, Sguil, Xplico, nmap, scapy, hping, netcat, tcpreplay, and many other security tools.
What can it be used for?
* The Security Onion LiveDVD can be used for Intrusion Detection. The Snort and Sguil daemons are automatically started on boot, listening on eth0 for any suspicious traffic and creating alerts in the Sguil database. Simply double-click the Sguil desktop shortcut to launch the GUI and view/investigate the alerts.
* The Security Onion LiveDVD can be used to test an Intrusion Detection System. Simply boot the DVD and use the included tools (such as nmap, scapy, hping, metasploit, and others) to test your existing IDS or to test the included Snort and Suricata IDS/IPS engines.
* The Security Onion LiveDVD can be used to install an Intrusion Detection System. Simply boot the DVD and double-click the Install desktop shortcut. For more information about installation, please see the "Installing to Hard Drive" section below.
512MB RAM is a minimum. 1GB or more is recommended.
