How to install Suricata intrusion detection system on Linux

With incessant security threats, intrusion detection system (IDS) has become one of the most critical requirements in today’s data center environments. However, as more and more server hardware upgrades NICs to 10GB/40GB Ethernet, it is increasingly difficult to implement intrusion detection on commodity hardware at line rates. One approach to scaling IDS performance is multi-threaded IDS, where CPU-intensive deep packet inspection is parallelized into multiple concurrent tasks.
