So you want to know about OSSEC

This blog is about OSSEC (Open Source Security), an Open Source Host-based Intrusion Detection System. So you heard about it and want to know more about it.  You have come to the right place.

  1. First, you can start from Wikipedia, which gives you a nice overview, and links to the following:
  2. A bit of history from an 2009 interview Q&A blog with the founder.
  3. How OSSEC was acquired and stayed open source and free.
  4. A link to the official web site, where you can download the latest released source code.
  5. The founder - Daniel Cid's blog
  6. Brazil: Jeronimo Zucco shared his slides on Implementing OSSEC, and the video (6 hours, in Portuguese) can be downloaded here.
  7. Belgium FOSDEM 2010: Wim Remes presented an OSSEC overview and the recorded video is available on YouTube.
  8. Nicolas Zin wrote a free ebook OSSEC HOWTO - The Quick and Dirty Way
