suricata-oinkmaster-updater - Run oinkmaster to update suricata ruleset

SURICATAS-OINKMASTER-UPDATER(8) System Manager's Manual SURICATAS-OINKMASTER-UPDATER(8)

NAME

suricata-oinkmaster-updater - Run oinkmaster to update suricata ruleset
 

SYNOPSIS

suricatas-oinkmaster-updater
 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the suricata-oinkmaster-updater command.
suricata-oinkmaster-updater is a shell script that run oinkmaster(1) to update suricata(8) ruleset. The intention is to hook the call to this script from a daily cron job, so suricata(8) rulesets are automagically updated every day.
 

HOW IT WORKS

The default Debian configuration will run oinkmaster(1) with the config file /etc/suricata/suricata-oinkmaster.conf which is pre-configured to download the EmergingThreats open ruleset for suricata(8).
When the download is completed, suricatasc(1) will be called to instruct suricata(8) to reload the ruleset.
 

CONFIGURATION

By now, the only way to modify the behaviour of suricata-oinkmaster-updater is to modify the /etc/suricata/suricata-oinkmaster.conf file (which is a oinkmaster(1) configuration file). Or modify the shell script itself.
More options may be added in the future.
