DESCRIPTION XML::IDMEF - A perl module for easily creating/parsing IDMEF messages IDMEF module is a wrapper around XML::DOM and XML::Parser, providing an interface designed to simplify the parsing and creation of IDMEF messages. IDMEF is an XML based standard for representing Intrusion Detection alert messages (http://www.silicondefense.com/idwg/). The interface provided by XML::IDMEF is designed to make it very simple to build an IDMEF message while parsing a log file with a key-value structure, which is the most common situation when writing a log export module for a given software. ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* This release (>0.11) introduces major internal changes compared with the previous versions. Furthermore, it implements the most *final* version of IDMEF. You'd hence better check that using this version of the module does not break anything in your code (it should not, but, well... you know...) And of course: this is a beta release and has not been thoroughly tested. Please try it out if you can and report success/failure to the author (email@example.com). Use in production systems is at your own risks. ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* WARNING ******* PREREQUISITES Requires XML::DOM and a XML::Parser. BUILDING/INSTALLING Once the archive is unpacked, use these commands: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install If for some reason, you can't run these commands, you can simple copy the IDMEF.pm file to your lib/XML directory. To find out which paths perl uses to locate modules, do 'perl -e "print join(\"\n\", @INC), \"\n\";"' STATUS This version is a beta release, and has not yet been thoroughly tested in production environment. It has been succesfully run on both linux and openbsd. If you encounter any problems installing or running this release, please email the author and provide him as much information as possible on the bug and its context. Please send any feedback to the author: firstname.lastname@example.org NEW IN THIS RELEASE The IDMEF DTD is compliant with the IDMEF rfc draft 12. Improved test sequences. See 'Changes' for a detailed historic. BUGS XML::IDMEF uses internally a simplified version of the IDMEF DTD, which makes that this module will fail to create some very specific IDMEF messages. In particular, recursive File tags are not accepted. COPYRIGHT Copyright 2002 Erwan Lemonnier. This module is free software under BSD license.
