Hi all,

Maybe i used bad expressions to send my message. 

Build our own scripts is used for configuration AND other specific things related to our project.

Anyway, is very nice get knowledge about the others options.

To contextualize, i'm working on sensors distributed infrastructure. For management, i build a web gui where is possible deploy new rules and updates on configs on each suricata instance.

Take a look on the working mode:

admin -> post new rules or configs in the master server (with web-gui).
engines (suricata instances) -> connect on the master and get all updates.
engines uses scripts to get and parser data.

There are other infos between master and engines.

Reading all these mails i'm convinced that ansible or puppet would do the job. But, in the web-gui, we intent get reports and a lot of specific things. My option is centralize all tasks about management sensors on a single place (web-gui).

Thank's all!

Learning a lot :)

You can roll out custom attributes with any configuration management system.

We use chef to distribute suricata configuration (and firewall, custom
services, etc).  HOME_NET and various variables are set on a per-host
basis where required.
