New Snort release with IPv6 support

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

Snort 2.8.4 was released today. There are several compelling reasons to upgrade. One of them is that 2.8.4 has much improved IPv6 support.

Snort has had basic IPv6 support for a while, but 2.8.4 adds IPv6 support for Frag3 and the application preprocessors (SMTP, FTP/Telnet, DCE/RPC, SSL, DNS, Portscan).

IDS support has been a stumbling block for IPv6 deployment, so I'm really glad to see this.

I'm really interesting in the development of Snort and IPv6. Is there any book which talks about this? Any snort rules for IPv6?

Thank you so much.

We keep waiting for IPv6 to be viable but I guess until we run out of IP's under 4 it won't happen,
great post
