      %T "Snort Cookbook: Solutions and Examples for Snort Administrators"

      Chapter one covers the installation of Snort on various systems, and
      even includes a wiring diagram for a passive tap, if you need that
      sort of application. (The "cookbook" format, with its
      "Problem/Solution" structure, seems a bit odd, in this case.) An
      assortment of issues in logging are dealt with in chapter two. The
      creation and maintenance of rules, in chapter three, is discussed in a
      very useful fashion. Chapter four is about preprocessing, and is
      somewhat more demanding of the reader. Administrative tools, for
      managing Snort sensors, rulesets, and data, are described in chapter
      five, while utilities for analysis and display of collected
      information are presented in six. A variety of additional uses for
      Snort are mentioned in chapter seven.

      This book outlines the basic use and operation of Snort in a
      convenient and easy-to-use manner. Aside from the first chapter, the
      cookbook format is used effectively, and thus the work becomes a
      handy, quick reference for those interested in using and exploring

      ====================== (quote inserted randomly by Pegasus Mailer)
      rslade@... slade@... rslade@...
      Let others complain that the times are wicked. I complain that
      they are paltry; for they are without passion. The thoughts of
      men are thin and frail like lace, and they themselves are feeble
      like girl lace-makers. The thoughts of their hearts are too puny
      to be sinful. - Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), Either/or (1843)
