[Snort-users] Snort and my VLANs

Let me lay it all out for you….Ok so I setup a test network not my actual production network.
Interface-> VLAN27= 192.168.127.1/24
IP range within that vlan is 192.168.127.10-20 ( I don’t need a broad test spectrum so 10 ip’s should be fine for what I’m doing)
Interface-> VLAN26= 192.168.126.1/24
IP range within that vlan is 192.168.126.10-20
Interface-> LAN= 192.168.125.1/24
IP range within that vlan is 192.168.125.10-20
Interface-> WAN IP is actually from dhcp so it is assigned an IP from production network….the above are static.
I get all kinds of alerts from WAN so I know it is working correctly. I need to be able to test and see if my VLANs will show up anything….Users that BYOD would be on a specific VLAN so isolation is key. I can’t allow bridges between my WAN and LAN or VLANs.
I tried to understand your answer, but need more clarity.

In this case you would need to place sensors between vlans for vlan-to-vlan communication/detection since the traffic will not be reaching the edge WAN or router interface and Snort will not be seeing the traffic. However, if a BYOD is, for example, infected with a malware which may be attempting to communicate to an external IP, then it has to go through the edge router and hence get detected by Snort.
This is where a distributed sensors deployment architecture would come in handy. I would suggest starting with, if you have one, the servers vlan to monitor any suspicious activity going to your servers.
I hope my answer makes some sense.

I’m having issues where I am not able to determine if I can actually catch bad traffic with snort.
Right now I have snort in a test lab where I have interfaces WAN, LAN….and then my VLANS. My firewall does all the routing and has the vlans setup. So when I go to testmyids.com and trigger a rule I get the rule triggered on my WAN interface but not any of my VLANs……
Basically what I’m trying to initiate is if a user brings in a byod…I want to be able to detect anything on that machine when it connects to my internal vlan.
