Open Source Network Monitoring and Security Appliance Developers Benefit from
Built-In Advanced Application Acceleration Capabilities
PF_RING is an open source, Linux kernel module for packet capture that is supported by most open source IPS/IDS solutions such as Snort, Suricata, and Bro as well as other applications such as Wireshark and Argus. It is the most widely recognized open software interface that enables on-the-fly packet indexing, packet analysis acceleration and filtering.
Accolade Technology’s 20, 40, 80 and 100G FPGA-based adapters offer PF_Ring support that enables Open Source Security and Monitoring Appliance developers to benefit from built-in advanced acceleration capabilities such as lossless packet capture, nanosecond precision timestamping, packet merging, packet filtering, flow classification, packet steering and more.
