Firekeeper IDS/IPS Firefox Plugin

Firekeeper is a snort-like plug-in for Firefox that embeds intrusion detection and prevention directly into the browser. The rule language is a simplified version of Snort’s, with a focus on browser-based attacks.

Good potential for use as as a dynamically updated host-based IDS without the need for a separate HIDS installation. A similar add-on for IE (the larger target) would be welcome; unfortunately Firekeeper doesn’t run within Firefox when IE is used as the rendering engine (such as with IETab). Although this could also be used for content-filtering, the fact that plug-in can be disabled by users makes it unenforceable, and thus of limited use for restrictive applications.
