HenWen is a network security package for Mac OS X that makes it easy to configure and run Snort, a free Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS). HenWen's goal is to simplify setting up and maintaining software that will scan network traffic for undesirable traffic a firewall may not block. Everything you need to have is bundled in; there is no compiling or command line use necessary.
IMPORTANT: HenWen is in permanent maintenance mode, and I have no plans to update it. The bundled version of Snort will not run in Leopard due to a change in Leopard's iODBC library (and you shouldn't use it in Tiger, either, since it has a security hole). If anyone is interested in performing the work necessary to get HenWen to work with the latest version of Snort, then please visit the SourceForge site linked below.Features:
