Sguil (pronounced "sgweel") is a graphical interface to snort
(www.snort.org), an open source intrusion detection system.
The actual interface and GUI server are written in tcl/tk
(www.tcl.tk). Sguil also relies on other open source software
in order to function properly.
The sensor list includes security/barnyard, security/snort,
security/sancp, tcpdump (a part of the OS) and devel/tcltls as
well as lang/tcl84 and lang/tclX. Care has been taken to ensure
that everything you need to build a working sguil operation is
in the FreeBSD ports system or part of the OS already.
Sguil currently functions as an analysis interface and has
no snort sensor or rule management capabilities.
