Intrusion Detection: Snort, Base, MySQL, and Apache2 On Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)
In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure Snort
(an intrusion detection system (IDS)) from source, BASE (Basic Analysis
and Security Engine), MySQL, and Apache2 on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon).
Snort will assist you in monitoring your network and alert you about
possible threats. Snort will output its log files to a MySQL database
which BASE will use to display a graphical interface in a web browser.
