Bro Package Manager¶
The Bro Package Manager makes it easy for Bro users to install and manage third
party scripts as well as plugins for Bro and BroControl. The command-line tool
is preconfigured to download packages from the Bro package source , a GitHub
repository that has been set up such that any developer can request their Bro
package be included. See the
README file of that repository for information
regarding the package submission process.
|note:||It’s left up to users to decide for themselves via code review, GitHub comments/stars, or other metrics whether any given package is trustworthy as there is no implied guarantees that it’s secure just because it’s been accepted into the default package source.|
See the package manager documentation for further usage information, how-to
guides, and walkthroughs. For offline reading, it’s also available in the
docs/ directory of the source code distribution.
