The Story of Snort: Past, Present and Future

Martin Roesch, the creator of Snort, the de facto standard for intrusion detection/prevention, presents the story of Snort that covers seven years of development that made this tool one of the most important security software titles ever developed.

During his talk you’ll get all the details on how Snort was initially conceived as well as how it is expected to develop further now after Check Point acquired Sourcefire. Among other things Martin talks about all the major Snort releases, the founding of Sourcefire, the enhancements added to the last versions of Snort, new technology that presents a self-tuning engine, and much more.
