Suricata inline mode mark packet and process it with firewall rule??



  • I would like to do some policy routing base on contents of a packet, but the firewall rule does not have complex dpi function i.e. deep packet inspection. I had a try with suricata, and it could perfectly inspect the packet by creating my custom rules. But it only allows me to drop the packet. I wonder if it can somehow tag the packet; and later, there could be some firewall rules to process these packet with certain tags.



  • I've searched the "whole" internet for days, but I haven't notice anything on this topic. Would someone please help me?



  • What you want to do is not currently possible with either Suricata or Snort on pfSense.  The firewall and the IDS/IPS do not cooperate with other at that level.
