What do you mean by 'host based snort'? Running snort on loopback and
having another process which would act as 'ssl accelerator'? (stunnel
could do that f.e.). The only thing which you won't be able to see here
is the actual source of offending requests, you'll have to analyse
stunnel logs for that.
