Comparison of Security Onions with Splunk (01/2016 – 04/2017)

Configured two separate Systems with Security Onions and Splunk respectively to detect anomalies on both networks.
In the case of Splunk-based system, splunk forwarder was deployed on each client machine with snort as IDS. Also, the universal forwarder was configured to send logs collected from IDS and system logs to the Indexer which was setup on another network. This project was carried out using different operating system (unix and Windows).
In the case of Security Onions, different IDS were configured to detect anomalies based on the set rules and policies. The collected data/logs were analyzed using Sguil and ELSA. Security Onion is a Linux distro for intrusion detection, network security monitoring, and log management. It contains Snort, Suricata, Bro, OSSEC, Sguil, ELSA and many other security tools.
This project used pfsense as the firewall to control the traffic into and out each dedicated servers. The pfsense was also configured as the router.
The aim of this project was in training security analyst on how to implement layered security and what to look for while collected data are being analyzed and investigated.
