suricata-oinkmaster-updater - Run oinkmaster to update suricata ruleset
This manual page documents briefly the suricatas-oinkmaster-updater command. suricata-oinkmaster-updater is a shell script that run oinkmaster(1) to update suricata(8) ruleset. The intention is to hook the call to this script from a daily cron job, so suricata(8) rulesets are automagically updated every day.
HOW IT WORKS
The default Debian configuration will run oinkmaster(1) with the config file /etc/suricata/suricata-oinkmaster.conf which is pre-configured to download the EmergingThreats open ruleset for suricata(8). When the download is completed, suricatasc(1) will be called to instruct suricata(8) to reload the ruleset.
By now, the only way to modify the behaviour of suricata-oinkmaster-updater is to modify the /etc/suricata/suricata-oinkmaster.conf file. Or modify the shell script itself. More options may be added in the future.
