Inline Snort Multiprocessing with PF_RING

Posted · Add Comment

Dear all,
our friends at MetaFlows have tested snort on top of PF_RING DAQ using 6765 Emerging Threats Pro rules. Using PF_RING-aware drivers (that are not optimized at all for TX), they have achieved a sustain rate of 700 Mbit in IPS mode. Guess what you can do using DNA.
