1. Snort Overview

This manual is based on Writing Snort Rules by Martin Roesch and further work from Chris Green $<$cmg@snort.org$>$. It was then maintained by Brian Caswell $<$bmc@snort.org$>$ and now is maintained by the Snort Team. If you have a better way to say something or find that something in the documentation is outdated, drop us a line and we will update it. If you would like to submit patches for this document, you can find the latest version of the documentation in LATEX format in the most recent source tarball under /doc/snort_manual.tex. Small documentation updates are the easiest way to help out the Snort Project.
