pads - Passively detect network assets
||FreeBSD Ports Quarterly amd64
PADS is a signature based detection engine used to passively detect
network assets. It is designed to complement IDS technology by
providing context to IDS alerts.
* Passive: Records and identifies traffic seen on a network without
actively "scanning" a system. There will never be a packet sent
from the pads applications.
* Portable: Has the ability to be placed easily on a remote system.
Does not require additional external libraries other than those
associated with libpcap.
* Lightweight: Logging is sent to a simple CSV file. There is no need
for a database or other data repository installed on the local
machine. All correlation is done outside of the pads program.
The pads port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in
the future. To volunteer to maintain this port, please create an issue at:
