|−|Barnyard2 is an open source interpreter for Snort unified2 binary output files. |+|
is . in and .
|−|Its primary use is allowing Snort to write to disk in an efficient manner and |+|
|−|leaving the task of parsing binary data into various formats to a separate |+|
|−|process that will not cause Snort to miss network traffic. |+|
| || |
|−|Barnyard2 has 3 modes of operation: |+|
|−| 1. batch (or one-shot), |+|
|−| 2. continual, and |+|
|−| 3. continual w/ bookmark. |+|
| || |
|−|In batch (or one-shot) mode, barnyard2 will process the explicitly specified |+|
|−|file(s) and exit. |+|
| || |
|−|In continual mode, barnyard2 will start with a location to look and a specified |+|
|−|file pattern and continue to process new data (and new spool files) as they |+|
and to and .
| || |
|−|Continual mode w/ bookmarking will also use a checkpoint file (or waldo file in |+|
|−|the snort world) to track where it is. In the event the barnyard2 process ends |+|
|−|while a waldo file is in use, barnyard2 will resume processing at the last |+|
|−|entry as listed in the waldo file. |+|
| || |
|−|The "-f", "-w", and "-o" options are used to determine which mode barnyard2 |+|
|−|will run in. It is legal for both the "-f" and "-w" options to be used on the |+|
, to run and
|−|command line at the same time, however any data that exists in the waldo file |+|
|−|will override the command line data from the "-f" and "-d" options. See the |+|
|−|command directives section below for more detail. |+|
| || |
|−|Barnyard2 processing is controlled by two main types of directives: input |+|
|−|processors and output plugins. The input processors read information in from a |+|
|−|specific format ( currently the spo_unified2 output module of Snort ) and |+|
The a of

|−|==History == |+|
|−|Barnyard is a critical tool for the parsing of Snort's unified binary files, processing and on-forwarding to a variety of output plugins. Unfortunately it has not seen an updated in over 4 years and is not going to be maintained by the original developers. With the new version of the unified format (ie. unified2) arriving we need something to bridge this gap. |+|
and and the the .
|−|To quote directly from the Snort FAQ: |+|
|−|* "Barnyard is an output system for Snort. Snort creates a special binary output format called unified. Barnyard reads this file, and then resends the data to a database backend. Unlike the database output plug-in , Barnyard is aware of a failure to send the alert to the database, and it stops sending alerts. It is also aware when the database can accept connections again and will start sending the alerts again. " |+|

|−|The SXL team love barnyard. So much so that we want it to stay and have been tinkering around with the code to give it a breath of new life. Here is what we have achieved to far for this reinvigorated code base: |+|

Kali is a complete re-build of BackTrack Linux, adhering completely to Debian development standards. All-new infrastructure has been put in place, all tools were reviewed and packaged, and we use Git for our VCS.
we eliminated a great number of tools that either did not work or had other tools available that provided

possibly can, allowing it to run properly on a wide variety of hardware and making it compatible with
numerous USB and other wireless devices.
do wireless assessments so our kernel has the latest injection patches included.
Secure development environment: The Kali Linux team is made up of a small group of trusted
individuals who can only commit packages and interact with the repositories while using multiple secure
they are built and committed and the repositories subsequently sign the packages as well.
Multi-language: Although pentesting tools tend to be written in English, we have ensured that Kali has
true multilingual support, allowing more users to operate in their native language and locate the tools
they need for the job.
decisions so we have made it as easy as possible for our more adventurous users to customize Kali Linux
to their liking, all the way down to the kernel.
inexpensive, we knew that Kali’s ARM support would need to be as robust as we could manage, resulting
in working installations for both ARMEL and ARMHF systems. Kali Linux has ARM repositories integrated
with the mainline distribution so tools for ARM will be updated in conjunction with the rest of the
knowledge of the Linux operating system.
