The Suricata Engine is an Open Source Next Generation Intrusion Detection and Prevention Engine. This engine is not intended to just replace or emulate the existing tools in the industry, but will bring new ideas and technologies to the field.
The Suricata Engine and the HTP Library are available to use under the GPLv2.
The HTP Library is an HTTP normalizer and parser written by Ivan Ristic of Mod Security fame for the OISF. This integrates and provides very advanced processing of HTTP streams for Suricata. The HTP library is required by the engine, but may also be used independently in a range of applications and tools.
Suricata Stable is available here. The current version is 1.2.1, released January 20, 2012.

Would they really give this away for free unless it allowed them
to inspect every computer that installed it? Am I too pessimistic
and paranoid maybe? How can one download and boot this up
without them knowing the MAC address of the machine booting?
