Installing Snorby for Snort on Centos 6.6 64bit

We’ve gone through installing Snort and installing PulledPork and Barnyard2. It’s not much help if there isn’t an easy way to look at the alerts and events being triggered in Snort. Snorby integrates with Snort by providing metrics and reporting. The installation is a ruby on rails application. If configured properly you can now classify events to pre-configured or custom classifications. You can also do so with a simple hot key.

Even for a small team who doesn’t have a dedicated security analyst you can schedule daily reports to be emailed out with a summary of events. To get a glimpse of what it’s capable you can take a look at the demo at http://demo.snorby.org. Username is snorby@snorby.org and the password is snorby.

4) Start Snorby
First we need to setup the database and the snorby defaults.
bundle exec rake snorby:setup
Once this is completed you can start Snorby using the following commands.

bundle exec rails server -e production

ruby script/delayed_job start RAILS_ENV=production
It is very important that you always remember to start Snorby in production mode.
Snorby ships with an administrator account preconfigured. The default credentials are listed below. Please remember you change the password/email address or remove this accout if it’s not needed.
  • Username: snorby@snorby.org
