Nagios IDS questions! (Student in need of help)

Postby darbaz09 » Thu Mar 16, 2017 5:00 pm


I'm currently doing a university project for Nagios core and Evaluating Nagios. I've been asked by my supervisor to use Nagios as an IDS, now I know this is possible but searching online i'm not really finding a lot about how to achieve this.

I'm very new to the concept of network monitoring tools such as Nagios, currently doing research and trying to gather information. Any help or ideas would be much appreciated it, as it will help me take on this challenge I have been given.

Thank you for you time :)

You'd probably want a collection checks, but you might start with ... sh/details

The next thing I'd probably look at is specific files most likely for an intruder to want to access.
