Securing Cisco? Networks with Snort Rule Writing Best Practices (SSFRULES) is an instructor-led, lab-intensive, course that introduces users of open source Snort or Sourcefire FireSIGHT1 systems to the Snort rules language and rule-writing best practices.
You will focus exclusively on the Snort rules language and rule writing. Starting from rule syntax and structure to advanced rule option usage, you will analyze exploit packet captures and put the rule writing theories learned to work by implementing rule language features to trigger alerts on the offending network traffic.
This course also provides instruction and lab exercises on how to detect certain types of attacks, such as buffer overflows, using various rule writing techniques. You will test your rule writing skills with two challenges: a theoretical challenge that tests your knowledge of rule syntax and usage, and a practical challenge in which you analyze and research an exploiting event, so you can defend your installations against attacks
This course combines lecture materials and hands-on labs throughout to make sure that you are able to successfully understand and implement open source rules.
After completing this course the student should be able to:
