Bro NSM Puppet Module

Puppet module to manage a Bro Network Security Monitor. (To learn more about Bro visit the organizations website: http://www.bro.org)

###Description This module has been tested on Centos 6.5 and Ubuntu 12.04. It should work on any Redhat or Debian based system. Redhat systems can install from pre-built bro.org package. Debian systems will need to set pkg_source => 'none' or 'repo'. If pkg_source = 'none', then prebuild and install the package manually. If set to repo, puppet will assume bro is in a package repository (yum/apt). Using a private package repository server is recommended.

Bro 2.3 Compatible

If running with pfring you will need to compile custom packages.

###Standalone Bro - RedHat

  class { 'bro':
    int => 'eth2',
  }

###Standalone Bro - Debian

  class { 'bro':
    pkg_source => 'none',
    int        => 'eth2',
  }

###Basic Bro Cluster

  class { 'bro':
    manager => 'sensor01',
    proxy   => 'sensor01',
    network => ['192.168.10.0/24','192.168.11.0/24'],
    type    => 'cluster',
  }
  bro::worker { 'eth1':
    host      => 'sensor01',
  }
  bro::worker { 'eth2':
    host      => 'sensor01',
  }

###Advanced - Bro Cluster : Pfring You must specify cpus or procs when method is in use. cpus ['1','4'] represents cpus 1,2,3,4 and will also place lb_procs value of 4.

  class { 'bro':
    manager => 'sensor01',
    proxy   => 'sensor01',
    network => ['192.168.10.0/24','192.168.11.0/24'],
    type    => 'cluster',
  }
  bro::worker { 'eth1':
    host      => 'sensor01',
    method    => 'pf_ring',
    cpus      => ['1','4'],
  }
  bro::worker { 'eth2':
    host      => 'sensor01',
    method    => 'pf_ring',
    procs     => '7',
  }

###Advanced - Bro Cluster : Myrcom

class { 'bro':
  manager => 'sensor01',
  proxy   => 'sensor01',
  network => ['192.168.10.0/24','192.168.11.0/24'],
  type    => 'cluster',
}
bro::worker { 'eth1':
  host      => 'sensor01',
  method    => 'myricom',
  procs     => '12'
}

local.bro

This bro module will first look for a local.bro.$hostname and if that file does not exist it will load the default local.bro.

Place any custom local.bro files in files/localbro

There is a default local.bro in files/localbro/local.bro "DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE."

To over-ride the default local.bro, modifiy the sitepolicy value.

  class { 'bro':
    sitepolicy => 'custom_local.bro',
  }

Bro Scripts

Place all Bro scripts into /files/scripts

Puppet will sync everythig you stick in this directory.

It is recommened to put bro scripts in individual directories and use __load__.bro files.

Example:
directory = scripts/something
script = scripts/something/something.bro
loader = scripts/something/__load__.bro

Then in your custom.local.bro you can @load scripts/something

  $mailto       = 'root@localhost' # Change notice email
  $sitepolicy   = 'local.bro'# Change the default site policy file. This is useful when customizing bro.
