[Snort-users] File preprocessor fails to capture files

Hi Hui,

I'm sorry for the delay, but I wanted to test some scenarios before
replying you.

Following your advice, I've disabled some optimizations in order to not to
get jumbo frames, which actually were present in my PCAP file. After
disabling the optimization, I was able to generate other PCAP files without
Jumbo frames.

This time I got several traffic network captures by using 3 small files
(8.1KB, 18KB and 63KB) and 'wget' and 'tcpdump' programs. I've tried to get
the captures as much simple as possible in order to avoid external
"noises", and to do that I've got 6 PCAP files for every one of these three
files, which gives me 18 PCAP files. I've also "cleaned" all these PCAP
files by removing the rest of the sessions in which the file isn't in.

After that, what I found on my first tests is that in all cases every file
was not always captured by Snort (IDS mode). When a file was not captured,
there were always 1 or 2 TCP Gaps and no TCP Discards and I could see with
Wireshark that there were at least one packet marked as "TCP ACKed unseen
segment" (see filter tcp.analysis.ack_lost_segment in Wireshark), which is
due to one ACK that arrives before the Datapacket acked does. On the other
hand, when the file was captured, there were neither TCP Gaps nor TCP
Discards and I could check with Wireshark that there were no packet marked
as "TCP ACKed unseen segment". Se examples below:

Regular PCAP file:

pkt 1: server | client | seq_100 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 2: server | client | seq_200 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 3: server | client | seq_300 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 4: server | client | seq_400 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 5: client | server | seq_050 | ack_200 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 1
pkt 6: client | server | seq_050 | ack_300 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 2
pkt 7: client | server | seq_050 | ack_400 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 3
pkt 8: client | server | seq_050 | ack_500 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 4

PCAP file with one TCP ACKed unseen segment:

pkt 1: server | client | seq_100 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 2: server | client | seq_200 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 3: server | client | seq_300 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 4: client | server | seq_050 | ack_200 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 1
pkt 5: client | server | seq_050 | ack_300 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 2
pkt 6: client | server | seq_050 | ack_400 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 3
pkt 7: client | server | seq_050 | ack_500 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 8 (TCP
ACKed unseen segment)
pkt 8: server | client | seq_400 | ack_050 | len 100

I've reordered some packets In PCAP files that cause TCP Gaps in Snort by
putting ACKs after their corresponding Datapacket (in the example above it
would consist in put the pkt 8 before pkt 7). This time, Snort didn't see
TCP Gaps when read these reordered PCAP files and was able to capture the
file inside.

This packet disruption is causing Snort to not work properly, since it's
finding "false" TCP Gaps, and I say "false" because actually these
Datapackets exists, but their corresponding ACKs are arriving before them
(just one position before is enough to discard the Datapacket).

To understand better how far Snort is able to take into account packet
disruptions, I've also tried to reorder a "consistent" PCAP file, with
neither TCP ACKed unseen segments nor TCP Gaps or Discard in Snort and
whose file inside is captured by Snort. Example of "consistent" or regular
PCAP file:

pkt 1: server | client | seq_100 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 2: server | client | seq_200 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 3: server | client | seq_300 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 4: server | client | seq_400 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 5: client | server | seq_050 | ack_200 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 1
pkt 6: client | server | seq_050 | ack_300 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 2
pkt 7: client | server | seq_050 | ack_400 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 3
pkt 8: client | server | seq_050 | ack_500 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 4

What I've done with this PCAP file is to alter the position of two
Datapacket, but without causing TCP ACKed unseen segments. See example
below in which pkt 2 is moved before pkt 3:

pkt 1: server | client | seq_100 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 2: server | client | seq_300 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 3: server | client | seq_200 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 4: server | client | seq_400 | ack_050 | len 100
pkt 5: client | server | seq_050 | ack_200 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 1
pkt 6: client | server | seq_050 | ack_300 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 2
pkt 7: client | server | seq_050 | ack_400 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 3
pkt 8: client | server | seq_050 | ack_500 | len 000 <- ack for pkt 4

In this case, Snort is able to detect this packet re-ordering and it does
not affect to the final result, since there's neither TCP Gaps nor Discards
and the file inside the TCP session is captured by Snort.

I've replayed all these tests in IPS mode with the same result, by using
'tcpreplay' program and sending these PCAP files through a network
interface.

Now, my question is whether there is a way that Snort could manage the
"false" TCP ACKed unseen segments due to packet re-ordering, in the same
way it manages the Datapacket re-ordering. Since the packet re-ordering
seems to be a common issue in networks.

I've reviewed the Stream5 and Frag3 options looking for a possible
configuration to solve this, but I haven't found anything related to this.

If any Snort output, PCAP file or whatever were useful to you, please don't
hesitate to ask for it.

Best Regards and Thank you very much for your help,
