Greater Augusta ISSA 2010 Q4 Public Meeting: Doug Burks presents "Security Onion: Intrusion Detection for your Network in Minutes"

Please join us at the Greater Augusta ISSA Q4 meeting on Thursday, October 28. This is our last public meeting of 2010! I will be presenting "Security Onion: Intrusion Detection for your Network in Minutes". Security Onion is a project that I've been working on for the past few years. Its goal is to provide a pre-configured Intrusion Detection environment that can be downloaded for free and put to use in your network in less than an hour. It's based on Xubuntu 10.04 and contains Snort, Suricata, Sguil, Xplico, Vortex IDS, Bro IDS, Chaosreader, driftnet, hping3, scapy, Wireshark, and many other tools. Come see what Security Onion can do for you!
