Anyone got the above config running?? It's all running, what I am wanting to do is include the iptables output in the reports generated by ACID. ULOGD has a plugin for output to a mysql database, does anyone know if this is a simple plug'n'pray or is preprocessing required?? Had a dig around on the net but couldn't turn up anything definite.

Failing that anyone know how to get Snort to listen in front of the firewall if it's running on the same machine....

Cheers

Well i have Snort up and running, logging to MySQL and viewable using the PHP based ACID. :P

It's really quite neat. Using ACID you can view alerts (ie. known potential attacks or probes etc.) and by cross referencing with your firewall logs can determine if your firewall is doing its job. Because Snort works off of TCPDump libraries it grabs the info before your firewall nails it :D.

Only problem that i have encountered is that there doesnt seem to be an easy way to do the cross referencing. the IPTables ULOG daemon can log to MySQL but there doesn't seem to be much functionality associated with this. Guess i'll just have to learn PHP and build my own plugin... :shock:

If people are interested i'll look at writing up a howto??

Cheers

I would be very interested in a HOW-TO for the site :)
