  • Run the Snort Tool
  • Create a folder and move the rule files in the Snort folder

Exercise 3 - Configure and Re-Test Snort

This exercise will consist of modifying the configuration files and then re-testing snort to confirm that it works.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Modify the Snort configuration file
  • Re-run Snort IDS tool

Exercise 4 - Configure Iptables

Kali is a multifaceted Linux operating system which is mainly focused on security and penetration testing. It combines a wide range of tools, from port scanners both active and passive to forensic tools which can be used to pull deleted data off hard drives.

Learning Outcomes
