Pytbull Intrusion Detection/Prevention System Testing Framework

http://www.ehacking.net/2014/02/pytbull-intrusion-detectionprevention.html
pytbull is an Intrusion Detection/Prevention System (IDS/IPS) Testing Framework for Snort, Suricata and any IDS/IPS that generates an alert file. It can be used to test the detection and blocking capabilities of an IDS/IPS, to compare IDS/IPS, to compare configuration modifications and to check/validate configurations.






The framework is shipped with about 300 tests grouped in 11 testing modules:


  1. badTraffic: Non RFC compliant packets are sent to the server to test how packets are processed.
  2. bruteForce: tests the ability of the server to track brute force attacks (e.g. FTP). Makes use of custom rules on Snort and Suricata.
  3. clientSideAttacks: this module uses a reverse shell to provide the server with instructions to download remote malicious files. This module tests the ability of the IDS/IPS to protect against client-side attacks.
  4. denialOfService: tests the ability of the IDS/IPS to protect against DoS attempts
  5. evasionTechniques: various evasion techniques are used to check if the IDS/IPS can detect them.
  6. fragmentedPackets: various fragmented payloads are sent to server to test its ability to recompose them and detect the attacks.
  7. ipReputation: tests the ability of the server to detect traffic from/to low reputation servers.
  8. normalUsage: Payloads that correspond to a normal usage.
  9. pcapReplay: enables to replay pcap files
  10. shellCodes: send various shellcodes to the server on port 21/tcp to test the ability of the server to detect/reject shellcodes.
  11. testRules: basic rules testing. These attacks are supposed to be detected by the rules sets shipped with the IDS/IPS.
