Any ideas for a Linux based intrusion detection option

Hello Friends,

We have a Sonic Wall Firewall and I would like to add disturbance detection on the network. The principal of the company is asking about is there is any options that sit between the Firewall and network. We have the Sonic Wall subscribed to per-year licensing and I'm worried that will this activity slow down the Firewall performance.

Any ideas for a Linux based intrusion detection option which doesn’t require being configured as a Firewall.

Thanks.

There are several solutions for this security measure using Linux. There are Kernel, /root, and file based solutions.  The most popular solution is using a program called IPChains for Linux. 

It will scan ports, and will alert the Firewall, or remap IP addresses to prevent the intruder from advancing further into the system.
