View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intrustion Detection Application

April 23rd, 2009, 05:31 PM
I have Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Herson. I would like to secure my OS with a good Intrusion Detection Application with a good GUI and alerts you when someone tries to break in and gain access. I did an apt-cache search intrusion and found a lot of choices. I am inquiring for some good thoughts and intelligent suggestions. Thank you.

My best recommendation is Kismet. It doesn't have a gui, but it is very powerful, and highly regarded in the Linux community. You might also use Tripwire to detect when someone tries to alter binaries or system files.

Have a look at the Intrusion Detection Sticky, it should answer most of your questions.
