Stamus Networks Open Source Projects

Stamus Networks believes in the innovative power and flexibility of Open Source software. Our primary contribution to the Open Source community are two projects: SELKS -- a live and installable ISO implementing a ready-to-use Suricata IDS/IPS -- and Scirius Community Edition, a web application dedicated to Suricata ruleset management.
