Bro v2.6 release: powerful network analysis framework
Bro Network Security Monitor
Bro is a powerful framework for network analysis and security monitoring. It is a powerful system that on top of the functionality it provides out of the box, also offers the flexibility to customize analysis pretty much arbitrarily
Bro’s domain-specific scripting language enables site-specific monitoring policies.
Bro targets high-performance networks and is used operationally at a variety of large sites.
Bro is not restricted to any particular detection approach and does not rely on traditional signatures.
Bro comprehensively logs what it sees and provides a high-level archive of a network’s activity.
Bro comes with analyzers for many protocols, enabling high-level semantic analysis at the application layer.
Bro keeps extensive application-layer state about the network it monitors.
Bro interfaces with other applications for real-time exchange of information.
Bro comes with a BSD license, allowing for free use with virtually no restrictions.
