I've thrown together a quick hack to require SSL use when logging to a mysql database. I've tested this against v22.214.171.124 and it seems to work fine.
A few notes:
-If you are chrooting snort, you'll need to have a devfs mount within the new root as the mysql client libs will want access to /dev/urandom.
-If you are chrooting snort, you will also need to have the certificates available within the chrooted environment as well.
-Once the patch has been applied, snort will require SSL for all mysql connections. To disable this you will need to revert the patch.
-Certificates must exist in /usr/local/etc/snort/certs and be named as follows:
--ca.pem: The CA's public key
--cert.pem: The client's public key
--key.pem: The client's private key
Ideally, this would be incorporated into future releases and include config knobs to allow for flexibility.
