Is this something that will be part of suricata in the future?



  • On reddit, there is a topic, discussing code, added to suricata to detect, among other things, DOH connections. I wonder if this feature will ever make it into the pfsense version of suricata, detecting and possibly blocking DOH might be a real benefit for users that absolutely want to prevent it. GitHub code here.

    Only if and when that code is merged into the offical upstream release of Suricata. The pfSense package uses the upstream binary. The only patch applied is to incorporate the custom blocking plugin.

    So if Suricata upstream accepts and merges that programmer's code edits, then it will appear in pfSense when the Suricata package updates to the latest upstream binary. If the programmer does not submit it to the Suricata upstream team via their Github site, then it will never make it into pfSense.
