Ohh ok Cool… Thanks for the explanation.

I was just watching the youtube video, very nice...
It was hard for me to read any of the text in the GUI on the video, but was that a building schematic that I was seeing in the video? If so, that’s pretty awesome!

Thanks Again,

Haha, no problem

In essence redBorder started as a Snorby on steroids (adding all the rule workflow and probe management side) but it's current code base differs completely. Our initial focus was to add enterprise type capabilities, while new ones insist more in scalability and intelligence capabilities

The public version is a bit old and still SQL based but new one is fully big data based. Hope to make this one public soon, but we have to nail some stuff in place yet

If you want to see the what the 3.x interface looks like here you have a video


It mixes information from the IPS and Flow (traffic visibility) but you get the idea

Hey Jaime, thanks for the reply as well, much appreciated!

No I haven’t heard of that one before… I’ll have to do some reading on that.

Thanks Again,

Hi Matt,

Have you given www.redBorder.org<http://www.redBorder.org> a look?

It will enable you to manage events as well as the probes themselves (rule workflow)

Hello All,

I am currently using BASE as my frontend for Snort. But I get errors when clicking into lots of stuff on the GUI, so I’m looking into other GUI frontends for Snort. Not to mention mostly every time I click on an “Alert”, when the page loads in the browser it just says in red that “Alert Deleted”… Don’t know why would it be deleting alerts…

But anyway, I came across Sguil which seems to be a pretty popular choice amongst GUI frontends for Snort. But I am a bit confused by the installation process, so I was hoping someone could explain this question below for me…?

I downloaded the most recent version of Sguil (*Sguil Version 0.9.0). And reading about the installation process on a number of different sites I am still confused by the Client/Server/Sensor architecture of it. I currently have my Snort installation, along with Barnyard2, MySQL, BASE and Oinkmaster all on the same server (*I downloaded PulledPork because I heard good things, but still need to install it and replace Oinkmaster…). I have had Snort running now on this server for a few weeks and it seems to be going well, except for the frontend...

So since I have Snort all contained on a single server am I supposed to install Sguil Client, Server, and Sensor on that server as well? If I want to use it simply as a frontend to Snort, do I need all 3 of those? I couldn’t find any installation docs for Sguil for when Snort and it’s MySQL Database are on the same server. All the docs seemed to be for “split” Snort installations, i.e. across multiple servers…

Could anyone explain to me those 3 different parts to Sguil? And whether or not I need all 3 of them installed?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks in Advance,
