  Description     : Next Generation Intrusion Detection and Prevention Tool

(The description is being worked on)

Suricata is a network Intrusion Detection System (IDS). It is based on
rules (and is fully compatible with snort rules) to detect a variety of
attacks / probes by searching packet content.
This new Engine supports Multi-Threading, Automatic Protocol Detection
(IP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, HTTP, TLS, FTP and SMB), Gzip Decompression, Fast
IP Matching and coming soon hardware acceleration on CUDA and OpenCL GPU

More details here: http://seclists.org/snort/2009/q4/599

Note that Suricata depends on the libhtp library which I intend to
package as well.
