There is no one way to do this as far as I know.  One approach I would take
with the Floodlight or BigSwitch controller would be to have Snort or
Barnyard send events to syslog, have a script monitoring syslog and do what
it needs to do with the controllers REST API.  This would be a pretty basic

Just noticed this is on snort-devel, but its probably better suited for the
users list.
