Scirius Community Edition is a web interface dedicated to Suricata ruleset management. It handles the rules file and updates of the associated files.
This guide will walk you through the installation of Scirius Community Edition on Ubuntu 16.04 operating system.
Before proceeding with installation of Scirius CE, you need to have IDS Suricata installed. Installation guide for Suricata can be found here.
Install python package and header file manager
sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev
Download Scirius repository from GitHub
git clone https://github.com/StamusNetworks/scirius.git
Go to the directory you have just downloaded and install the necessary dependencies from inside there
cd scirius sudo pip install -r requirements.txt
Download pyinotify module to monitor changes in the file system. This module is needed to restart Suricata from Scirius.
sudo pip install pyinotify
Download the Gitdb module to enable reading and writing to git repositories
sudo pip install gitdb
sudo apt-get install npm
Download webpack version 3.11
sudo npm install -g npm@latest firstname.lastname@example.org
The previous command has created a directory for the Scirius Hunt component. Go to the Hunt directory, install Hunt and prepare it for use
cd hunt npm install npm run build
Initiate the Django database from inside the scirius directory
python manage.py migrate
Create a superuser account
python manage.py createsuperuser
Before starting the application, you need to construct the bundles by running webpack (this step has to be repeated after each code update)
Use this command to start Scirius accessible on local device only on address localhost:8000
sudo python manage.py runserver
If you want scirius to listen to an address reachable form an outside network, you need to add the address to ALLOWED_HOSTS list in settings.py. Afterwards, you can run Scirius with the followng command
python manage.py runserver x.x.x.x:8000
