I just published a new installation guide for Sguil 0.3.0. Sguil is an interface to Snort which operates using Network Security Monitoring principles. This means it is dedicated to answering the "now what?" question that faces analysts who receive IDS alerts. Sguil provides alert, session, and full content data with a minimum of mouse clicks, window changes, and keystrokes.
Users not familiar with FreeBSD should have no problems following the instructions. I provide dozens of screen shots and step-by-step comments to get the OS and all needed applications installed.
The document is available in .pdf form here (.pdf).
The new guide uses FreeBSD 4.9 RELEASE as the server platform and Windows 2000 or XP as the analyst workstation.
Please send comments on the guide to sguil at taosecurity dot com. I plan to incorporate as many suggestions for improvement as humanly possible.
Update:I'm collaborating with Soup4You2 from BSDHound on an expanded document.
