Security Onion Set Up Part 3: Configuration of Version 14.04

Before we begin configuring Security Onion, it’s a good idea to get an Oinkcode from snort.org┬áif you’re going to use Snort.

Snort can also use the Emerging Threat rulesets.

There are three options available to obtain an Oinkcode.

  1. Community Edition – the rules are updated every 30 days, no support – FREE
  2. Personal – the rules are released daily, can submit false positives, home network or educational environments only – $29.99 per year
  3. Business – the rules are updated daily, priority support for false positives and Talos (the parent company) will work directly with you, for use in businesses, colleges, government, etc. – $399 per sensor per year
