About Suricata


SuriCon is an annual open source technology community conference that highlights discussions and developments relative to Suricata, the powerful intrusion detection and prevention tool.

Throughout the span of three days, SuriCon showcases speakers from around the globe who provide their expertise and insight into how best to maximize the application of Suricata’s technology. Attendees have the opportunity to network with sponsors, discuss new applications and knowledge during poster sessions, & mingle freely in a more relaxed environment than the usual virtual space Suricata users often occupy.

SuriCon also hosts an add-on option for advanced hands-on training sessions which take place throughout the two days prior to the general sessions. These are led by Suricata developers.


Suricata is a high performance Network IDS, IPS and Network Security Monitoring engine. It is open source and owned by a community-run non-profit foundation, the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF). Suricata is developed by OISF and its supporting vendors.
