OSSEC HIDS Latest Stable Release (2.8.3)

OSSEC is an Open Source Host-based Intrusion Detection System that performs log analysis, file integrity checking, policy monitoring, rootkit detection, real-time alerting and active response. It runs on most operating systems, including Linux, MacOS, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and Windows.

You can find more information at OSSEC HIDS project documentation, or the reference manual.


For the OSSEC manager, this version doesn’t allow the integration with ELK Stack neither the use of Wazuh RESTFUL API. If you plan to use either of these two, or both, follow the Wazuh HIDS installation guide instead.
