scanlogd 2.2.7

An Open Source daemon that tries to log all portscans of a host to the syslog software
scanlogd is an open source command-line software written in C, a system daemon that acts as a TCP port scan detection utility. It was initially designed to visualize various IDS (Intrusion Detection System) attacks.

scanlogd is a safer TCP port scan detection tool, when compared with similar programs, and it’s aware of the libpcap and libnids libraries. However, the developers don’t recommend the use of libpcap alone.

The software can run under Linux, Windows and Mac OS X operating systems, but the libnids library is required for the Mac and Windows platforms.
