3.2.3 Release Notes

This section shows the most relevant improvements and fixes in version 3.2.3. More details about these changes are provided in each component changelog.

GDPR Support

The General Data Protection Regulation took effect on 25th May 2018. Wazuh helps with most technical requirements, taking advantage of features such as File Integrity or Policy monitoring. In addition, the entire Ruleset has been mapped following the GDPR regulation, enriching all the alerts related to this purpose.

You can read more information about the GDPR regulation and how Wazuh faces it on the this section: Using Wazuh for GDPR.

Wazuh cluster

This version fixes several performance issues (like CPU usage) and synchronization errors. The communications and synchronization algorithm have been redesigned in order to improve the cluster performance and reliability.

Now, the client nodes initialize the communication and only the master node is included in the client configuration.

The number of daemons has been reduced to one: wazuh-clusterd.
