How and where to get new rules?

i’m new to Suricata and IDS/IPS.
I’m thinking of protecting some hosts with Suricata. I think that the quality of an IDS stands and falls with the quality and up-to-dateness of the rules. Correct ?
How often are the rules for Suricata updated ? Can i automate the procedure of updating the rules ?



Suricata does not manage rulesets; we’ve developed suricata-update to help with that task.

Suricata-update is documented in a few places
