[Snort-devel] support for OLSR protocol in Snort

Hello all, I'm planning to develop a signature-based IDS for OLSR using
Snort as my detection engine. For a very
brief background, OLSR is a wireless ad-hoc routing protocol that is derived
from OSPF. For now, am keeping it simple,
so I do not plan to have router communication during the detection process.
My question is this: how should I approach this?
That is, should I simply make it a snort plugin (OLSR messages are sent
to/from port 698 using UDP), or should I attempt
to directly add OLSR functionality, treating it like protocols like
TCP/ICMP? Any suggestions?
