[Snort-devel] IBM DotStar

I just read in the current issue of Computer from IEEE an article
detailing IBM's development of something called DotStar. It appears this
code greatly enhances regex via compilation and single-pass analysis, and
is tuned for multi-core performance.

Unfortunately, I can't find much info on the Web about this. Nor could I
find any code to play with.

This seems like it could have a great impact on software like Snort. Does
anyone know anything more about this?

Thanks!
Randy
