Sending output to prelude

Prelude is a Hybrid IDS that uses IDMEF to receive alert information from external devices. If you are a Prelude user and wish to send your OSSEC alerts to Prelude, do the following:

Enabling Prelude Support


You must have the Prelude libraries installed on the OSSEC server.

Before you run the ”./” script execute the following to compile OSSEC with prelude support.

# cd ossec-hids-*
# cd src; make setprelude; cd ..
# ./

Enable Prelude output in the configuration

Just add the following entry to your ossec.conf inside the <global> section.


Prelude extra options

You can define your own profile and set the log level from which you can send alerts to prelude with those parameters. Once again in the <global> section.
