Hi EverOne,

Iam in need of some documents which explains me in detail about the Pattern Match Algorithm Techniques currently used 

by snort in Version (=/>)2.0. I want to know as to how thus snort uses the Multiple content search and implement the 

special options such as distance,Within etc. 

I am aware about the basic algorithm like Boyer Moyre & AC_BM apporaches mentioned in the doc present at the following link.


But i want to know about the current implementation as i read somewhere it uses a enhanced approach BM set wise algo etc.


Thanks in Advance !!
