Firestorm is an extremely high performance network intrusion detection system (NIDS). At the moment it just a sensor but plans are to include real support for analysis, reporting, remote console and on-the-fly sensor configuration. It is fully pluggable and hence extremely flexible. Firestorm performs a lot better than all other systems I have tested (such as snort and prelude) by as much as a factor of 2 (and thats under favourable conditions, it way outstrips the competition under a targeted DoS attack).

A Network Intrusion Detection System is a system which can identify suspicious patterns in network traffic. If a firewall is a doorman, a NIDS is an undercover KGB agent. He silently gathers intelligence and can watch an enemy even if the door security has already let them in (maybe the enemy can make fake identification documents).

Tested Platforms

Linux 2.x
FreeBSD 4.x
OpenBSD
Solaris
Should compile and run on any mainstream UNIX really...
