Just over a week ago in beautiful Copenhagen, Denmark, the team saw a long over due dream come to a reality. We held our first 5-day Suricata Developers Training. Thanks to our hosts at NapaTech this event was a great success for us and for the 13 Suricata fans who joined us.
Victor Julien and Eric Leblond led the group across around major topics including the design bases, API overview and code implementation. To help attendees really absorb the topics, they included hands-on experiences throughout the training. The hands-on portion of the training was greatly helped by the ‘provision’ scripts the team had created prior to the training. It made sure they could focus on what mattered, while not wasting much time on all kinds of small details. Everyone wrote a decoder module with a matching detection module. Next to this, an app-layer protocol detector, decoder, logger and detection module. Including multi-pattern matcher support. Quite an accomplishment for those short 5 days!
