What is Snort IDS?

The most popular Open Source Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) in the world is called Snort. Snort IPS searches for packets that match against a set of rules it has created to help define malicious network activity. It then provides alerts for users.

Additionally, Snort can be implemented inline to block these packets. Snort has three main applications: as a packet sniffer similar to tcpdump; as a packet logger useful for troubleshooting network traffic; or as a full-fledged network intrusion prevention system. Both private and commercial users can download and set up Snort.
