Network probe detector for SATAN

LOS ANGELES--As a public service, Los Altos Technologies, a provider of UNIX system security software, has developed and released Gabriel (TM), a SATAN detector. Gabriel gives the system administrator an early warning of possible network intrusions by detecting and identifying network probing. Gabriel is complete and ready to run. Los Altos Technologies is providing Gabriel to its customers and anyone else who wishes to use it at no charge. It is expected that any future updates, enhancements, and revisions will come from the users.

Gabriel's Highlights:

  • gabriel_client - reports to gabriel_server excessive probing of any host on its network segment
  • gabriel_server - gathers data from clients and notifies the administrator of probes
  • install_gabriel_client - single program to install and start client monitor program network wide
  • install_gabriel_server - installs server program
  • Ready to run for Sun Solaris1 and Solaris2 operating systems
  • Full source included. Perl is not required.
  • Test script included to evaluate the package if you don't have SATAN
  • Notifies administrator via custom reports, email and pager
