Event Details


Suricata is a high-performance Network IDS, IPS and Network Security Monitoring engine sought after around the world. Open-source and managed by a community.  Suricata is a part of the non-profit foundation; the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF). OISF’s mission is to remain on the leading edge of open source IDS/IPS development by welcoming in open sources technologies looking for a community to support them.


Intrusion detection systems are at the core of any comprehensive security strategy, regardless if they are on-premise or in the cloud. Whether you are creating the perfect network monitoring and logging infrastructure or building the next-generation intrusion detection and analysis system, gaining a comprehensive technical understanding of Suricata is a must. In Suricata Developer Deep Dive, you will get hands-on with Suricata’s core technology and walk away with in-depth understanding of not only how it works but also how to customize it’s capabilities. The course will begin by introducing Suricata’s overall architecture, identifying key components and features. Next, you will get hands on with Suricata’s packet decoder and detection modules, understand the application layer decoder and logging modules, and see how the application layer detection module works. You will learn how to use the Rust language to extend Suricata’s capabilities and write an application layer decoder in Rust. Changing code can bring about bugs, ensure stability with your new builds by learning how to run unit tests and enabling debug mode. Finally, no open-source project is complete without ways to contribute, learn more about the community that surrounds Suricata and how to get involved. This class offers a unique opportunity to bring questions, challenges and new ideas directly to the Suricata development team and lead developer, Victor Julien. This course is a unique and intensive learning experience geared towards developers and security professionals and will allow you to take your Suricata usage to the next level!

This unique and intensive learning event is especially geared toward developers and security professionals wanting a deeper dive into Suricata's technology.  

Open to the public with limited space.
