libprelude: The central library for Prelude-IDS framework 1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Libprelude is the library that provide the framework used to access the Prelude system. It handles secured communications with one or several prelude-manager collector, and provide an API (Application Programming Interface) to create IDMEF (Intrusion Detection Message Exchange Format) based events. It also provides important features like failover (saving to a local file for later retransmission, usage of a fallback route), in case one of the prelude-manager server used goes down. Moreover, it gives you the ability to create sensor that read events received by one or a set of prelude-manager. You could for example write an interactive notification system using this feature.
