Inliniac is my weblog about all kinds of inline network security, NSM and Intrusion Detection. I may also use it to write about other subjects that I find interesting.


My name is Victor Julien. I live in the Netherlands in Western Europe. I’m a IT professional and enthousiast. During my studies, I have worked as system and network administrator. I’m currently working as a freelance contract developer for security software and I’m the lead developer of Suricata, the new Open Source IDS/IPS that is developed by the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF). My resume is available on request. For more info see my LinkedIn profile.

My projects

I’m active in a number of Open Source projects.

  • Since early 2002 I have been working on my own Open Source project called Vuurmuur, which is a Linux/IPtables frontend. Originally started as a little project to learn coding in C, it since as evolved to be a full featured firewall.
  • I’m the author of a ModSecurity agent for Sguil called modsec2sguil.
  • SidReporter: a collaborative approach to IDS.
  • I’m one of the initial members and current lead developer of the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF), a US government funded foundation formed for the creation of a new Open Source IDS/IPS engine called “Suricata”.

Past projects:

  • I was of the developers that worked on the Snort_inline project. Here I focused mostly on the TCP state engine and stream reassembler. I originally created the ClamAV plugin for Snort, which is now mostly maintained by Snort_Inline maintainer William Metcalf.
