This one might be worth your time to dig into a little ... the DAQ README
and Snort README.active are a good place to start. There is a lot there and
I can't do it justice here, but some responses to the above:
* Active response enables sending TCP resets or ICMP unreachables and is
possible in passive or inline mode.
* The DAQ provides more flavors than just pcap or iptables (via NFQ or
IPQ). See, for example, afpacket.
* Also, NFQ and IPQ don't update iptables rules; all packets pass through
Snort which renders a verdict to the kernel.
