 Watching the network with Snort

BigAdmin over at Sun has this nice write up on how to keep an eye on things with Snort.

"Intrusion detection is the methodology by which undesirable or aberrant activity is detected on a host or a network. The two main approaches to intrusion detection systems are host-based (HIDS) and network-based (NIDS). A combination of both provides the most complete coverage, but a site's needs and resources may dictate that it uses one or the other."
