I am creating a desktop client app for detecting the network intrusion detection and prevention. I am planning to use the suricate for the same. I installed the Suricata MSI and try the Suricata custom rules and log the events. But I need to install the suricata while installing the desktop agent in client machines. I am trying to automate the installation of suricata in the client machine. Is there any way to install suricata to the client machine from suricata binary source any other way other than MSI. If possible could you please provide some hints.
The MSI is the only Windows binary we provide. So I think the options are:
- compile your own, or
- see if you can extract the binary from the MSI w/o running the installer. Not sure if this is possible.
