My 10th Snort Report on Snort 2.8.0 new features: IPv6 and port lists is now available online. From the start of the article:
Snort 2.8.0 was recently published with several features long desired by Snort veterans. These new features include IPv6, port lists, packet performance monitoring and control of actions enabled by preprocessor or decoder events. This edition of the Snort Report provides details on IPv6 and port lists that VARs and systems integrators can use to optimize their use of the open source intrusion detection system.
In the next Snort Report I plan to look at other features in Snort 2.8.
