Abstract: Since each organization has its own security culture and background, there is not an out-of-the-box solution that fits all the possible security requirements. There may be some contexts in which it is necessary to monitor and prevent certain application-level attacks with less impact on pre-existent configuration. For example, there may be some constraints on processing resources of some embedded devices. Starting from this consideration, we developed s2ipt, a python-powered tool which aims to implement a lightweight Netfilter-based network intrusion detection and prevention system (IDS/IPS) by translating Snort community rules into iptables rulesset. s2ipt utilizes the netfilter string matching module to detect application-level attacks. Netfilter reduces the impact on a system, has less memory and CPU footprint, which makes it suitable to run even on low-cost devices than a solution like Snort. s2ipt allows iptables to detect application layer attacks in a transparent way, in fact it only adds new application layer ruleset leaving the existing ones unchanged.
