Hi all,

I am planning to write a detection plugin for SNORT that does protocol normalization (normalizes the packets on standards/RFC). Is there any HOWTO document for SNORT plugin developers?

I planning to normalize packets as malformed packets are used as IDS evasion techniques. Moreover normalize packets also helps to reduce Active Fingerprinting efforts.

I m currently looking for following information
1. Is there are plugin/preprocessor that normalizes IP/TCP/UDP/ICMP
2. A pointer to document that describes plugin development for SNORT.

Thanks In Advance and Have A Great Day.
