Security Onion Documentation Updates

I spent some time this morning creating and updating several pages on the Security Onion Wiki:

Installation Procedure


Email Configuration



If you see any changes that need to be made or documentation that needs to be added, please write it up and we'll get it posted!

Help Wanted
Security Onion needs help in the following areas:

  • assisting users on the mailing list and in IRC
  • quality assurance and testing new releases
  • documentation

If Security Onion has provided value to you and/or your organization, please consider giving back to the community by donating your time to the above needs!  If interested, please contact me via email.  Thanks!

Hi Appreciate if someone can share a logical connection digram. For example where the eth0 and eth1 suppose to connect. Thanks

Doug Burks said...

Hi Anonymous,

You could have eth0 be your management interface and eth1 be your sniffing interface or vice versa. The management interface would connect to a standard switchport and the sniffing interface would connect to a tap or a span/monitor port.

Hope that helps!
