Snort is a renowned open-source intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) that actively monitors network traffic to identify and prevent malicious activities. It analyzes packets and generates alerts if it detects any suspicious or potentially harmful network traffic. Snort can be used to protect both home and enterprise networks from various types of attacks and security breaches.
To install Snort on Ubuntu 18.04, you can follow these steps:
Open a terminal window.
Update the package list of your system by running the following command: sudo apt update
Install Snort by running the following command: sudo apt install snort
During the installation process, you will be prompted to set a password for the Snort database. Make sure to remember this password, as you may need it for configuration and monitoring purposes.
After the installation is complete, you can start or stop Snort using the following commands: sudo systemctl start snort - Start Snort sudo systemctl stop snort - Stop Snort
