Summary: psad analyzes iptables log messages for suspect traffic
Port Scan Attack Detector (psad) is a collection of three lightweight
system daemons written in Perl and in C that are designed to work with Linux
iptables firewalling code to detect port scans and other suspect traffic.  It
features a set of highly configurable danger thresholds (with sensible
defaults provided), verbose alert messages that include the source,
destination, scanned port range, begin and end times, tcp flags and
corresponding nmap options, reverse DNS info, email and syslog alerting,
automatic blocking of offending ip addresses via dynamic configuration of
iptables rulesets, and passive operating system fingerprinting.  In addition,
psad incorporates many of the tcp, udp, and icmp signatures included in the
snort intrusion detection system ( to detect highly
suspect scans for various backdoor programs (e.g. EvilFTP, GirlFriend,
SubSeven), DDoS tools (mstream, shaft), and advanced port scans (syn, fin,
xmas) which are easily leveraged against a machine via nmap.  psad can also
alert on snort signatures that are logged via fwsnort
(, which makes use of the
iptables string match module to detect application layer signatures.

  - psad-2.0.6 release
* Thu Mar 01 2007 Michael Rash <>
  - psad-2.0.5 release
  - Removed all config files except for psad.conf since the psad daemons now all
    reference the same config file (psad.conf).

  - psad-2.0.4 release
* Sun Dec 31 2006 Michael Rash <>
  - psad-2.0.3 release
  - Removed perl module and and scripts.  This
    is a major change that allows psad to be more flexible and completely derive
    its config from the psad.conf file and from the command line.  In the
    previous scheme, psad imported its config with a function within,
    and this required that psad imported the Psad perl module before reading its
    config.  A consequence is that the PSAD_LIBS_DIR var could not be specified
    usefully within the config file.
