No Hawaiian shirts today - it's the coldest day in Miami this year at thirty-seven (37) degrees. Because I'm from New England, I'm loving every minute of it while I watch my peers shiver.

One of my projects at work was to install and setup the Snort Intrusion Detection System. I wrote a whitepaper on it a few months ago. I also set up the amazing PHP project ACID to translate the information. My current project is to research and implement Bro into our network. Bro is a similar NIDS like Snort, but it's more powerful due to it's regular expression engine.

This is my first entry for Advogato. Recently, I finished a rather challenging data structures assignment which implemented circular doubly linked lists in Java. After a few hours, I've realized that the scope of my variables were incorrect, and everything worked.

My current open source projects listed below.

SeminarSite
SeminarSite is a packaged web site for seminar and/or training programs. It features an administration panel where users can add speakers, and create, schedule, and announce seminars.
FireSet
FireSet features a collection of tools to aid the network or security administrator in generating firewall rules for IPTables, IPChains, and Cisco IOS. It also includes support for ASCII text and HTML output for firewall explanations in English.
sJab
sJab is a Perl-based command-line Jabber instant message client. Currently, it can send messages to users and conferences. This script may be useful for system, network, and security administrators who wish to be instantly notified via Jabber of alerts from systems and security monitoring programs.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
