Preface

Welcome to Instant OSSEC Host-based Intrusion Detection. We're going to jump into exploring the vast possibilities that OSSEC HIDS offers its users. We'll dive into the installation and basic configuration of OSSEC HIDS so you can start protecting your valuable assets today! From there, we will build on these basic concepts to explore harnessing the power of OSSEC HIDS's flexible decoders, rules, and active responses to unlock powerful, time-saving functionality. We will challenge the notion that security software will slow you down and create more work by leveraging OSSEC HIDS's automation capabilities to do our work so we can spend more time at the pub!
