RE: Test scripts for NIDS

I've gotten alot of suggestions to test the
signatures, i've got some to test the load but they
were $$$, anything out there for free ?

With a software and not an appliance how does one test
the load to know when the IDS can no longer verify
packets and they are being dropped ? Is this included
in the software ?

Thanks again everyone :)

<SNIP>

I know there is a tool that generates Snort's
alerts, but I 
just cannot remeber it's name :(

The tool you're talking about is called "SNOT". You
can find it
here: http://www.stolenshoes.net/sniph/index.html

From the file 'snot-0.92a-README.txt' post at that
URL:

"Snot is an arbitrary packet generator, that uses
snort rules
files as its source of packet information. It
attempts at all
times to randomise information that is not contained
in the
rule, to hamper the generation of 'snot detection'
snort rules.

It can be used as an IDS evasion tool, by using
specific decoy
hosts, or just something to keep your friendly IDS
monitoring
staff busy.

It has been tested to run on *BSD, Linux, Win2k,
NT4.0 and Win98."

I hope this helps,
Alex Arndt
