    Linux IDS

    Hey guys I found on the net a tool I didn't know about:
    LIDS (Linux IDS): basicaly an File System IDS & integrity checker. http://www.lids.org/

    Sound like a good tool does anyone have feedback about it?

    Nice tool! I've used Snort (www.snort.org) for the longest time, and I think it's pretty much your best all around IDS system... HOWEVER, from what I've seen on their webpage, LIDS offers a whole lot!

    I think one of the coolest features is actually the local security features, as opposed to the network security features that IDS systems usually limit themselves to. I'm going to install LIDS on my box and see what it can do.

    There are basicly 2 types of IDSs. Host based and network based. LIDS is a host based IDS and Snort is a network based IDS. Therefor these 2 cannot be compared to each other as they both have a different 'field of view'.
