Testing Suricata


After doing research on NIDS testing tools (and especially Suricata one’s), I can’t find relevant tools that offer a variety of tools.

Do you something to recommend !

ps: I look into “testmynids.org” and it doesn’t work for me.

Did you check out the scripts at GitHub - 3CORESec/testmynids.org: A website and framework for testing NIDS detection?

In short, this is probably the easiest way to test that your Suricata is actually listening, and parsing packets, and generating alerts.

More thorough and scenario-specific testing would require something more custom. If you can elaborate on what you want to test, maybe others come jump in with some ideas.
