Network monitoring library with TCP/IP reassembly using libnet11 Maintained by:wxs@FreeBSD.org Port Added: 17 May 2013 02:01:08 Also Listed In:security License: GPLv2
Libnids is a library that provides the function of one of the NIDS
(Network Intrusion Detection System) components, namely E-component. The
libnids code watches all local network traffic, processes received
datagrams a bit, and provides convenient information on them to analyzing
modules. Libnids performs:
a) assembly of TCP segments into TCP streams
b) IP defragmentation
c) TCP port scan detection
This slave port builds with libnet11 by default.
* - deleted ports are only shown under the This port is required by section. It was harder to do for the Required section. Perhaps later...
To install the port:cd /usr/ports/net/libnids-libnet11/ && make install clean To add the package:pkg install net/libnids-libnet11
===> The following configuration options are available for libnids-libnet11-1.24_1:
GLIB2=on: Use GLIB2 for multiprocessing support
LIBNET10=off: Use libnet 1.0.x
LIBNET11=on: Use libnet 1.1.x
===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings
libnids-libnet11 is a slave port of libnids that specifically uses libnet11.
This is required because vortex needs libnids built with libnet11 while other
ports (dsniff) needs libnids built with libnet10.
