Security Onion 16.04.6.2 now available featuring Elastic 6.8.2, Wazuh 3.9.5, CyberChef 9.2.0, Bro 2.6.3, Snort 2.9.13.0, and more!

Security Onion 16.04.6.2 is now available!

Security Onion 16.04.6.2

Major Changes Since Last ISO Image

  • Elastic 6.8.2
  • Wazuh 3.9.5
  • CyberChef 9.2.0
  • Bro 2.6.3
  • Snort 2.9.13.0
  • PulledPork 0.7.3
  • Users can now run Setup interactively via GUI or CLI
  • Users can now optionally switch from open source Elastic Stack to Elastic Features using so-elastic-features
  • Users can now optionally enable native Elastic auth using so-elastic-auth (which automatically runs so-elastic-features and then configures all processes for native Elastic auth)
  • so-import-pcap has been overhauled!
  • fixed lots of bugs!

sosetup-minimal
sosetup-minimal will run the normal sosetup and then reconfigure the Elastic Stack to run in minimal mode.  This minimal mode is designed to minimize RAM and CPU usage.  This means that sosetup-minimal can run Evaluation Mode in only 4GB RAM!  However, please note that the minimal Logstash config is intended to only do a basic parsing of NIDS alerts and JSON-formatted Bro logs so it won't support additional logs like sysmon and autoruns by default.  It also doesn't do additional decoration or augmentation like domainstats or freqserver. You can see an example of sosetup-minimal in the Screenshot Tour at the end of this blog post.

Thanks
Thanks to Josh Brower for testing this ISO image!
