-Snort is an open source network intrusion detection and prevention system. It
-is capable of performing real-time traffic analysis, alerting, blocking and
-packet logging on IP networks. It utilizes a combination of protocol analysis
-and pattern matchingin order to detect a anomalies, misuse and attacks.
-Snort uses a flexible rules language to describe activity that can be considered
-malicious or anomalous as well as an analysis engine that incorporates a modular
-plugin architecture. Snort is capable of detecting and responding in real-time,
-sending alerts, performing session sniping, logging packets, or dropping
-sessions/packets when deployed in-line.
-Snort has three primary functional modes. It can be used as a packet sniffer
-like tcpdump(1), a packet logger (useful for network traffic debugging, etc),
-or as a full blown network intrusion detection and prevention system.
-Note that --libdir seems to be ignored on Slackware64; libraries are installed
-to /usr/lib anyway.
