An intrusion detection system
Snort is a libpcap-based packet sniffer/logger which can be used as a
lightweight network intrusion detection system.  It features rules
based logging and can perform protocol analysis, content
searching/matching and can be used to detect a variety of attacks and
probes, such as buffer overflows, stealth port scans, CGI attacks, SMB
probes, OS fingerprinting attempts, and much more.  Snort has a
real-time alerting capabilty, with alerts being sent to syslog, a
seperate "alert" file, or as a WinPopup message via Samba's smbclient.

Please see the documentation in /usr/share/doc/snort-
