Subject: [Snort-devel] Pattern matching
How can I change snort's pattern matching algorithm. coz boyer-moore
algorithm is very slow in respect to wu manber and exclusion based
algorithm which was performed by professors of crete university? does
anyone have any idea about changing this pattern matching?
