snorby is a ruby application that is used to display / report the results of detection of intrusion detection software such as Snort, Sagan, and suricata. Snorby has an attractive appearance and layout, it is neat and easy to use, making snorby become one great option, beside anval, base, and the standard snortreport as snort reporting sotware to user. if you want to install snort, on a previous post i have written about the basic installation of Snort, which is one of the standard and widely IDS used.
Snorby is a ruby application, because of that its installation process us a little bit new for me. Snorby installation tutorials have been written and published on the internet. It is also displayed on the main page of http://snorby.org, but the installation tutorials is not comprehensive enough. so if you are looking for the comprehensive one, you can go to snorby.org wiki pages. There is snorby installation in ubuntu without the use of RVM. The installation tutorial is complete enough to be followed if we want to install snorby on ubuntu machine.
