[Snort-users] php, base issue

Well said! I 100% agree. Even though I have alerts forwarding via syslog to
other destinations like Splunk, there is just something about BASE that
trumps everything else.  I've tried many other apps as well including
Snorby and Sguil.

I hear such statements all the time.  Would be nice if someone took BASE
and revamped (but not whole-hog) it.

I've been using BASE for almost 10 years, even after using both Sguil and
Snorby.  There's something about BASE that Snorby just can't match...just
my opinion.  I do check Snorby from time to time to assess any new
features.  Last I checked, it still had a long way to go, so I kept using
BASE.  Sguil...I don't know, since I never force myself to spend enough
time to better utilize it.  I usually just get frustrated and wipe it out.

BASE seems less maintenance intensive than either Sguil and Snorby.  I
don't want to have to learn Ruby/Rails to use Snorby.  I didn't really have
to understand all that much about PHP to begin using BASE, and I already
had a good knowledge of MySQL, Snort, and Apache (and a multitude of other
things).  I'll be using BASE for another 10 years, or until something else
(that isn't Sguil or Snorby) is released. If that doesn't happen, I'll go
straight to the raw logs and begin using correlation scripts and tools.
