Well...Since I requested this forum...I thought it would only be right if I at least posted in it...

I just want to list out a few of the products I have worked with in the IDS arena, so hopefully if you guys have questions about product specific things, or maybe just general IDS things, hopefully I can help. The thing I am really interested in though is learning new things from you guys. IDS is a relatively new topic in network security, and there is much to be learned. I haven't even scratched the surface, but with some good ideas and participation in this forum, we all can really expand our knowledge. With that said, here are the products I know (or have worked with.

- Snort
- Cisco host IDS (formerly Entercept)
- Cisco Network IDS, Netranger, and products associate with it
- Symantec Intruder Alert (ITA)
- Symantec NetProwler

And other pseudo opensource IDS's like Tripwire, Portsentry....etc

BTW....Thanks JP for listening to our ideas, and adding this forum
