Bro is an open-source highly-stateful network analysis framework. Although it’s mainly focused on network security monitoring, it provides a platform for general network traffic analysis as well. Bro is the monitoring backbone for many universities, research labs and supercomputing data-centers around the world. It is developed by Vern Paxson along with a team of researchers at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications in Urbana-Champaign. Today we are going to show you how to install Bro on an Ubuntu 16.04 VPS.
