We are happy to announce the beta of Bro v2.5 is available for download! Here is a brief summary of some of the new features and improvements:
- Bro now includes the NetControl framework. This framework allows easy interaction with hard- and software switches, firewalls, etc.
- Support for the SMB protocol (SMB1 and SMB2), including GSSAPI and NTLM.
- Support for the remote framebuffer protocol (RFB), that is used by VNC servers for remote graphical display.
- The Intelligence framework was refactored and extended. It now supports, for example subnet indicators and item deletion/expiration.
Binary packages of the beta are also available.
Feedback is encouraged and should be sent to the Bro mailing list. As previously stated, we do not recommend using a beta release for production use.
