This work has been funded by nPulse Technologies.  This is an output
plugin for Suricata that optionally sends alert information to Bro
using Broccoli.

A similar capability already exists in Barnyard2 that forwards alerts
to Bro by ingesting unified2 alert logs.  This operates by sending
Broccoli data to Bro directly from Suricata.  The Broccoli event
format generated by this output plugin is aligned fairly close to that
generated by Barnyard2.

A simple Bro script example has been provided in the contrib directory
that ingests suricata alert events and writes a log file similar to
the fast.log file format.  This is intended to be an example of how
one might consume suricata alerts from within Bro.
