suricata-oinkmaster-updater - Run oinkmaster to update suricata ruleset
This manual page documents briefly the suricata-oinkmaster-updater command.
suricata-oinkmaster-updater is a shell script that runs oinkmaster(1) to update suricata(8) ruleset. The intention is to hook the call to this script from a daily cron job, so suricata(8) rulesets are automagically updated every day.
HOW IT WORKS¶
The default Debian configuration will run oinkmaster(1) with the config file /etc/suricata/suricata-oinkmaster.conf which is pre-configured to download the EmergingThreats open ruleset for suricata(8).
When the download is completed, suricatasc(1) will be called to instruct suricata(8) to reload the ruleset.
By now, the only way to modify the behaviour of suricata-oinkmaster-updater is to modify the /etc/suricata/suricata-oinkmaster.conf file (which is a oinkmaster(1) configuration file). Or modify the shell script itself.
More options may be added in the future.
suricata(8), oinkmaster(1), suricatasc(1)
suricata-oinkmaster-updater and this manpage were written by Arturo Borrero Gonzalez <firstname.lastname@example.org> for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but it may be used by others).
