What is Security Onion?

Security Onion is a Linux distro for IDS (Intrusion Detection) and NSM (Network Security Monitoring). It's based on Ubuntu and contains Snort, Suricata, Bro, Sguil, Squert, Snorby, ELSA, Xplico, NetworkMiner, and many other security tools. The easy-to-use Setup wizard allows you to build an army of distributed sensors for your enterprise in minutes!

What hardware will be required for the class?

Students will need a laptop that is capable of running a 64-bit VM with at least 2GB RAM allocated to the VM.  (3GB RAM or more for the VM is highly recommended).

What do students need to do prior to class?

Students should ensure that their laptop is fully capable of running a 64-bit VM by downloading the Security Onion ISO image and verifying that it runs AND installs in their VM.   Please see our Installation guide:
