Instructions: Snort was developed for Unix/Linux machines, but there are versions compatible for Microsoft Windows. Your project to be completed is to download, install, and configure Snort on a Linux machine. It is recommended that you construct a Linux virtual machine (vm) in either VMware Workstation or Oracle VirtualBox, install/configure Snort, and then show a successfully validated configuration. Part of your installation/configuration of Snort will be to create a Security Group Snort with a user Jane who has permissions for Snort.
The document you will turn in to receive credit will contain your name, date, and consist of two screenshots:
- Your terminal window showing the command sudo snort –T –i eth0 –u Jane –g snort –c /etc/snort/snort.conf. The interface might be something other than eth0, but everything else must be the same.
- Your terminal window after the command has run and shows Snort successfully validated the configuration!
