Hello all
I have a general question about setting up a snort sensor systems. When I
place the sensor in front of the firewall, it will make this system very
vunerable against attacks. Although I would like to analyze the data in
realtime. How can i setup such a system without compromising my security
issues? Would it make sense to setup a system with snort, firewall, database
and analyze engine or is it more usefull to transfer the data (and how?) to
a internal system for analyzing ? 
Thanks for any help.
