Passive detection of network probes and intrusion attempts

Snort performs protocol analysis and can passively detect a variety of attacks and probes such as buffer overflows, stealth port scans, web application attacks, and OS fingerprinting attempts. Snort is developed by Sourcefire.

Web-based analysis of intrusions

BASE is the Basic Analysis and Security Engine; a web-interface that provides a visual representation of intrusion data and allows analysis of possible intrusions that Snort has detected on your network. BASE is developed by the volunteers at Secure Ideas.

Automatic rule updates

The Snort rules are updated daily using Oinkmaster. EasyIDS can be configured to use and update the official Snort (VRT licensed) rules, the community rules and third party rules such as the Bleeding Snort rules. Oinkmaster is developed by Andreas Ostling.

Web-based analysis of network traffic

SnortNotify is a lightweight script that searches the database for new alerts meeting the configured priority and sends an e-mail containing specific information about those alerts. SnortNotify is developed by 780INC.

Snort performance graphs

PMGraph is a perl script that generates Snort performance graphs. Some of the graphs include: Dropped Packets, Alerts Per Second, Average Bytes Per Packet, Open Sessions, CPU stats, and much more. PMGraph is developed by Andreas Ostling.
