automating the snort IDS in FreeBSD   Leave a comment

Currently I am into automating the process of installing and configuring snort in FreeBSD. I have developed a small script which installs and configures Snort, MySql, Apache, PHP, ADODB and Base console in FreeBSD. Currently I have written the following scripts:

1) -> creates all necessary directories and users

2) -> installs dependencies like libpcap, pcre, libxml2

3) -> installs mysql

4) -> installs snort and updates the rules

5) -> creates snort db schema and confifures acl’s for accessing

6) -> installs apache, php and mod security


right now I am into developing scripts for updating configuration files too.. like after you install all the above you need to manually modify snort.conf, httpd.conf;etc for settings.. 

i am also developing a model to secure the entire ids by hardening FreeBSD, MySQL, Apache;etc and distributed IDS

will update soon !!!
