Suricata released!

Today we’ve finally released the first public version of Suricata, the Open Source IDS/IPS developed by the Open Information Security Foundation. With a team of great people we’ve been working really hard to get this ready. Please see the full announcement here.

As it’s lead developer I’m very much interested in getting feedback, bug reports and such. We run our ticket system in a redmine install at If you have any feedback, please register an account and let us know what you think.

If you’re running into any issue, reconfigure and recompile the engine with –enable-unittests and –enable-debug and send us the output of “suricata -u” this will run all the unittests (1191 currently). If everything is set up properly, they should all pass. If not, please start bugging us!

Happy new year everyone!
