SWFLSec Suricata 101 Presentation

December 21, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

Here’s your chance to attend a Suricata 101 training led by OISF developers Shivani Bhardwaj & Juliana Fajardini!

With the increasing reliance on the internet for all businesses and transactions, the importance of monitoring the network has never been greater. In order to detect or prevent such attacks, network monitoring is of the utmost importance. In this talk, we will introduce you to Suricata, which is a world-class network monitoring and security tool. Suricata is a robust engine for network detection, prevention, and security monitoring. This means that while Suricata can serve the purpose of detection and prevention, it can also provide you with a lot of network metadata with its engine that you can use to analyze the traffic and determine a course of action. Where does Suricata’s power come from? Suricata is a high-performance network monitoring and security engine with active and passive monitoring, metadata logging and real-time file identification and extraction – this allows Suricata to quickly identify, stop, and assess the most sophisticated attacks. Suricata integrates seamlessly with your network and can be embedded within numerous respected commercial and open source solutions.

Join us for an introduction to Suricata, where we shall show how to install and use it on your network, how to build a simple system of detection on your home network; different ways Suricata ingests traffic; different logs of Suricata, and analyzing them and rule management with Suricata-update. We shall also work on a real-world malware example, see how to make Suricata detect it, and analyze logs to get a lot more information.
