Intrusion Detection: Snort, Base, MySQL, And Apache2 On Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)

Intrusion Detection: Snort, Base, MySQL, and Apache2 On Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon)

In this tutorial I will describe how to install and configure Snort (an intrusion detection system (IDS)) from source, BASE (Basic Analysis and Security Engine), MySQL, and Apache2 on Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon). Snort will assist you in monitoring your network and alert you about possible threats. Snort will output its log files to a MySQL database which BASE will use to display a graphical interface in a web browser.

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Fedora 8)

Virtual Users And Domains With Postfix, Courier And MySQL (Fedora 8)

This document describes how to install a mail server based on Postfix that is based on virtual users and domains, i.e. users and domains that are in a MySQL database. I'll also demonstrate the installation and configuration of Courier (Courier-POP3, Courier-IMAP), so that Courier can authenticate against the same MySQL database Postfix uses. The resulting Postfix server is capable of SMTP-AUTH and TLS and quota (quota is not built into Postfix by default, I'll show how to patch your Postfix appropriately). Passwords are stored in encrypted form in the database (most documents I found were dealing with plain text passwords which is a security risk). In addition to that, this tutorial covers the installation of Amavisd, SpamAssassin and ClamAV so that emails will be scanned for spam and viruses.

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

How To Enable Multiple HTTPS Sites For One IP On Debian Etch Using TLS Extensions

This how-to is Debian specific but could be ported to other distributions since the concept is the same. In order to use TLS Extensions we have to patch and recompile apache2 and recompile OpenSSL with the enable-tlsext directive. Since TLS Extensions are relatively new, some internet browsers will not work so the apache2 server will deliver just the default site as http 1.0 does on an http 1.1 server.

How To Install courier-imap, courier-authlib, And maildrop On Fedora, RedHat, CentOS

How To Install courier-imap, courier-authlib, And maildrop On Fedora, RedHat, CentOS

For some reason there are no Courier packages (courier-imap, courier-authlib, maildrop) available on RedHat-based distributions (RedHat, Fedora, CentOS), and the only third-party repository that had such packages seems to have closed (enlartenment.com). Therefore this tutorial explains how you can create and install your own Courier rpm packages from the sources, and I provide download links for my Courier rpm packages that I compiled on Fedora 8 (i386) so that you can save some time.
