You probably want to write a dynamic preprocessor that has some
normalization capabilities.

I'd start here :
http://www.snort.org/snort-downloads/dynamic-preprocessor-starter-kit/ on
how to build a dynamic preproc

Then I'd go here : http://wiki.wireshark.org/Protocols/bacnet as wireshark
has a decoder and some sample pcap traffic to test with.

You will need to be relatively proficient in C to write a dynamic
