[Snort-users] secure server push of snort rules

We are doing this now...we use a cron job that makes an ssh2 connection
using hostbased authentication and scp the rules to the remote servers.  We
don't use rsync, hardly seems necessary becuase the rules files are so small
might just as well copy them reguardless of whether they are new or not.
The remote machines have a cron job that HUP's snort periodically.  Thinking
about using the same system to update the binaries.

Fellow snorters,
     I have 5 machines with 3 interfaces each with their own installs of
snort for a grand daddy total of 15 sensors. I'm  trying to come up with a
way to push out new rules and turn sensors on and off from one centralized
machine. This is a "no clear text" network so it would have to be over ssl.
Before I even start looking into perl + NetSSLeay I wanted to make sure I
wasn't reinventing the wheel. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts?
