Hi,
I used the live cd to install Security Onion on a test PC (used the
install option from boot). During the install I gave a new username
and password and it seemed to install ok. I then used the setup Icon
and choose to keep the default home variable, did not download new
rules and choose suricata. Sguill seems to start up ok but there is no
traffic captured (generated traffic using ping etc). Any ideas where I
went wrong, is there any changes I need to make to get it working, is
there a stand config document I could use to check my settings?

Thanks

Hi pc,

A few questions for you:
1. Do you have more than one network interface? By default, Snort/
Suricata only listen on eth0.
2. Have you tried using the Setup script to switch back to Snort and
see if you get different results?
3. What exactly did you use for testing traffic? Sguil is not going
to show an alert for every packet, only packets that match the rules
in /etc/snort/rules/snort.rules. Try opening Firefox and clicking the
testmyids.com link. This should match one of the default rules and
create an alert.

Thanks,
Doug Burks

Hi,
sorry for the late reply.
I have since wiped the install and reinstalled via the live cd desktop
icon. I removed the spare nic before install so now there is only
eth0.
Once booted up I used the setup Icon and took the default DHCP address
for eth0, I did not download any new rules and choose snort as the
IDS.
I then tested by running a default Nessus scan pointed directly at the
IDS IP address. This seemed to work as it collected alot of alerts/
traffic in sguil.
I then switched to Suricata using the setup Icon, and ran the same
test, I got no traffic or alerts at all in sguil. Is there something I
need to manualy change in Suricata to get it to work with sguil. How
do I check if Suricata is collecting any info at all but just not
passing it to sguil ?

Hello again pc,

Did you notice if Sguil's CNT column incremented? Since you ran the
same Nessus scan a second time (which would have generated the same
alerts), Sguil should have incremented the CNT column for each of the
alerts that fired.

If you want to see the alerts appear in the Sguil interface as they're
generated, then you can remove the existing alerts from the GUI before
running your Nessus scan. You can do this by either:
-pressing the F8 key while the alert is highlighted
OR
-right-clicking on the ST column for the alert and clicking "Expire
Event as NA"

Please let us know whether or not that helps.

Thanks,
Doug Burks

Hi,
The CNT column was not incrementing, I cleared out any entries as you
suggested and ran Nessus again but no traffic was collected.
I then changed back to snort using setup Icon, I then got an error in /
Var/log/nsm/sensor1/snortu.log = Unable to open rules file @etc/nsm/
sensor1/./rules/snort.rules no such file or directory Quitting
So snort is not working now ?????
I also noticed if I try to update to a more advanced ruleset I get the
error /etc/pulledpork/pulledpork.conf: permission denied ??

It sounds like it tried to update the rules and failed, leaving you
with an empty snort.rules file. It should have made a backup copy of
your snort.rules file before overwriting. Take a look at /etc/snort/
rules/ and see if there is a snort.rules file with the date appended
to it (for example: snort.rules.20101021). If so, rename that file to
snort.rules and Snort should then be able to start successfully.

Regarding the permission error, you logged in with the username/
password you created in the installer, right? Does that user have
full sudo privileges? What is the output of "sudo -l"?

Thanks,
Doug Burks

Hi,
I renamed the file to snort.rules and ran setup again, I got the same
error and also the ruLes file got renamed to todays date again.
the output for sudo -l for the user is (ALL). ALL

Rename the file to snort.rules again but don't run setup this time.
Just run the following command:
sudo service nsm restart

This should restart all Snort/Sguil services. If everything goes
correctly, Snort should be running and you should be able to login to
Sguil. If not, copy the entire terminal output into your reply email
so I can see what's going on. Then try restarting the box to see if
that helps.

Let's get Snort working again before proceeding to troubleshooting
your rule download.

Thanks,
Doug

We've already established that you're having issues with the setup
script, so let's remove it from the equation for now. I'd like to
focus on getting snort working again. Once we've gotten that far,
then we'll determine what's going wrong with the setup script.

Please do the following:

1. Rename the snort.rules.YYYYMMDD file to snort.rules, but do NOT run setup!

2. Run the following commands and copy the output to your reply email:
sudo service nsm restart
ls -al /etc/snort/rules/
ls -al /etc/snort/

Thanks,

I see the output of "ls -al /etc/snort/rules/" and "ls -al

Based on that output, it looks like the Snort alert instance is
starting properly now. However, Barnyard2 is failing. If we can
resolve the Barnyard2 issue, then alerts should start appearing in
Sguil again. Barnyard2 may be trying to process data that has already
been processed, so let's try cleaning out the unified2 files from /nsm/
sensor_data/sensor1/. Please copy the output of the following
commands into your reply email (again, please do not run the setup
script):

sudo service nsm stop
sudo ls -alh /nsm/sensor_data/sensor1/
sudo mv /nsm/sensor_data/sensor1/*unified2* /tmp/
sudo service nsm start
cat /var/log/nsm/sensor1/barnyard2.log

Once we get Barnyard2 happy, then we will investigate why the setup
script is failing on your box.

Based on that output, it looks like Barnyard2 is now running
correctly. Login to Sguil, send some attack traffic, and you should
see the alerts appear (and/or the CNT column increment). Can you
confirm this?

I found a bug in the setup script. I left off "sudo" in front of "cp /
etc/pulledpork.conf.master /etc/pulledpork/pulledpork.conf". I didn't
catch this in testing because I usually run setup as root. From your
output below, it looks like you're running as root also, so you should
be able to run "setup" from your root prompt and everything should
work fine.

I've created Issue 23 to correct the setup script and it will be fixed
in the next release:
http://code.google.com/p/security-onion/issues/detail?id=23

If you have any further questions or problems, please let me know.

Thanks,
Doug Burks

Hi,
Thanks for that. I ran setup as root from a terminal /usr/local/bin/
setup, I choose snort and did not update the rules. I opened sguil and
pointed nessus at the server and could observe traffic. I then ran
setup again from the terminal as root and changed to suricata, did not
update any rules etc. I could not see any traffic updates when running
suricata, I could change back to snort without any problem. So
suricata does not seem to be working properly.

Thanks

Thanks for the update.

When you switch to Suricata, do you see it running in your list of
processes? Or is it dying on startup?

Please run the following commands (as root) and copy the output into
your reply email.

If you haven't already, run setup and switch to Suricata.

Get a list of all processes and search for suricata:
ps aux |grep suricat[a]

If you don't see the suricata process in the output of the previous
command, try starting it manually:
suricata -c /etc/suricata/suricata.yaml -i eth0

If it's dying on startup, then the output of the previous command
should tell us why.

Please also include the following:
ls -alh /var/log/
ls -alh /nsm/sensor_data/sensor1/
uname -a
cat /proc/cpuinfo

Thanks,

Hi,
sorry for the late reply I have been out of commission for a while and
have just picked up on this again. I followed your instructions but no
Joy, below is the output when logged in as root.

Suricata is failing with an Illegal Instruction. Seems to be a
Suricata-specific issue. You might try compiling Suricata on your own
Ubuntu installation to see if you get the same result.

Good Evening Doug,
I was wondering if there has been any solution to the problem in
this post. I appear to have a similar situation where snort will
detect the traffic (using testmyids.com) and suricata will not. I've
re-run the setup script in this post a few times (each time running
the nsm_all_del script prior to setup) and get the same result.

I'm presently running securityonion 20110122. Let me know if you
would like to see any of my config files or command outputs. Thanks
for your help

Sincerely,
Gene

Is Suricata running? What is the output of the following command?
ps aux | grep sguil

Are there any errors in /var/log/nsm/NAME_OF_SENSOR/suricata.log? Can
you include this log file in your reply?

Have you tried just putting the rule you want to test (SID 498) in
/etc/nsm/rules/downloaded.rules and no other rules?

Thanks,

Doug,
  Thanks for the response.  I think Suricata is running (ps shows an entry and log file shows engine started) but I'm not positive since I don't see any alerts in Sguil after testmyids.com.  Here are the files you reqeusted.

gene@securityonion:/var/log/nsm/eth0$

I did remove all of the rules from /etc/nsm/rules/downloaded.rules except for SID 498.  Even with that change I don't get any alerts on Sguil.

gene@securityonion:/var/log/nsm/eth0$ cat /etc/nsm/rules/downloaded.rules
alert ip any any -> any any (msg:"ATTACK-RESPONSES id check returned root"; content:"uid=0|28|root|29|"; metadata:policy balanced-ips drop, policy security-ips drop; classtype:bad-unknown; sid:498; rev:7;)

Thanks again for a great product.  I really hope to get suricata up and working as I really want to try it out.

A few more questions and things to try:

What are the specs of your machine? CPU, RAM, etc.

What is the load on your machine while Suricata is running? (top)

Instead of accessing testmyids.com from the browser, go to a terminal and type:
curl http://testmyids.com

Then press the Up arrow and Enter to run it again. Do that 5 or 10
times and see if any alerts appear in Sguil.

What is the output of the following command?

ls -alh /nsm/sensor_data/eth0/

Does the snort.unified2 file in that directory grow?

Thanks,

Doug,
  Interesting.  Running the command below I get a hit in sguil.  Tells me that suricata is looking at an interface and reporting to the database and that sguil is reading from the same database.  Now the question is why suricata is not seeing the events as they come through the browser.  Here are my specs:

Dell Latitude D620 with a Core2Duo and 1GB ram.  2 interfaces, eth0 and eth1.

eth1 is the admin side so the web requests should be going out that interface but eth0 is connected between my router's wan port and my ISP's connection so therefore anything that is coming in to the network should be seen by eth0. 

Now the question is why suricata alerts on the command line attempt to access testmyids.com and not on the browser attempt. 

Here is a screenshot of top with Suricata running.  Of note Suricata is taking 42% of the ram:

My guess is that you had already gone to testmyids.com in your browser
and it was cached. Try going to testmyids.com and then do a
Shift-Reload and see if that results in an alert.

Thanks,

Doug,
  Learned something new (again) today.  Thought that the F5 key forced a reload, but apparently it's not the same as <shift> and click on reload.  That worked!  Thanks for taking the time to square me away on this.  Now that I have a known good install I'm set.  Thanks again!
