> We’re pleased to introduce the Snort Security Platform (SnortSP) 3.0
> Beta, our first beta release built on the new Snort 3.0 architecture.
> The Snort 3.0 architecture consists of two primary components: a
> software platform called the Snort Security Platform (SnortSP) 3.0,
> which is shipping in beta form in this release, and traffic analysis
> engine modules that plug into SnortSP. This beta test release contains
> one engine module which contains the Snort 2.8.2 detection engine
> implemented as a SnortSP engine module.
> SnortSP is an open-source platform for running packet-based network
> security applications. It provides many of the common functions required
> by programs that deal with packet processing such as configuration
> loading, event generation and traffic logging, data acquisition,
> protocol decoding and validation, flow management, and more.
> Major features:
> * Shell-based user interface with embedded scripting language
> * Native IPv6, MPLS and GRE support
> * Native support for inline operation
> * More subsystem plugin types such as data acquisition modules, decoders
> and traffic analyzers
> * Multithreaded execution model
> * Performance increases
> The purpose of this beta release is to allow people to get exposure to
> the technology and to use the code in real-world environments - and as
> an opportunity to solicit feedback on the design and user experience of
> the new Snort code.
> All feedback on the beta should go to sspbeta at ...402...
> Happy Snorting!
