Security Onion 2 and the Future of CentOS

Security Onion 2 currently supports both Ubuntu 18.04 and CentOS 7. The CentOS project recently made an announcement about their shift from CentOS Linux to CentOS Stream:

While the article talks about major changes for CentOS 8, it's important to note that CentOS 7 will continue to be supported. From the article:

Meanwhile, we understand many of you are deeply invested in CentOS Linux 7, and we’ll continue to produce that version through the remainder of the RHEL 7 life cycle.

Security Onion 2 will continue to support both CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18.04 for the time being. We are monitoring this situation closely and when it comes time to migrate off of CentOS 7, we'll consider our options at that time including the new Rocky Linux:
