Panel Discussion: State and Future of Open-Source Network Intrusion Detection

While open-source network intrusion detection systems have been around for a long time already, a number of them are currently adding significant new capabilities and increasing performance. We have invited representatives of the three major open-source systems--Bro, Snort, and Suricata--to give us an update on the current state of their systems, present their roadmaps, and answer questions from the RAID audience.

Panel Moderator:

Ron Gula, Tenable Network Security

Panel participants:

Seth Hall, International Computer Science Insitute

Victor Julien, Open Infosec Foundation

Martin Roesch, Sourcefire

Suricata Community Meeting

When: Monday, September 19th 2011, the day before RAID 2011. 12pm to 5pm.
Where: SRI Menlo Park Campus, in Menlo Park Califormia, I Building

The Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) Brainstorming session held in conjunction with the 2011 Symposium on Research Advances in Intrusion Detection.

Attention IDS/Network Security Researcher,

The OISF will hold its Suricata Brainstorming Meeting prior to the RAID Symposium, where industry and researcher will meet to discuss Suricata, OISF's open source intrusion detection and prevention engine, and seek to brainstorm open source security opportunities. OISF offers an opportunity for the research community to extend, collaborate, and champion new initiatives for the future of open source security technologies. We hope this meeting can inspire researchers to help influence, extend, or simply learn more about this key opensource security initiative. Suricata represents the current state-of-the-art opensource IDS/IPS system a vailable today, providing researchers a potential platform to explore and extend new prototype security concepts. You are invited and encouraged to attend this meeting, plus FREE LUNCH included!

BACKGROUND: The OISF is a multi-national group of the leading software developers in the security industry. It consist of leading cyber security companies, and is actively engaging the open source security community to identify current and future IDS/IPS needs and desires. If you've never attended an OISF Brainstorming Session expect to be challenged, and expect to participate. We outline where we are, how the development roadmap looks, and then we throw everything up for discussion. We go through lists of other ideas submitted and suggested, debate the value and technical challenges, and at the end of the day we've rewritten and reprioritized our development roadmap.
