In this hands-on lab, you will set up Snort as an NIDS and have it alert, via a log, any traffic (bi-directional) to Server2. Likewise, it should also alert on any incoming web requests (port 80).

Developing an understanding of a NIDS is fundamental to becoming familiar with the role they play in the network as it pertains to security.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
