Hi Savakh,

The analyzer for specific protocols are included in src\analyzer\protocol
of the source code repository . You may also take a look at Binpac (
https://www.bro.org/sphinx/components/binpac/README.html). Most current
application layer protocols based on TCP or UDP are added in Bro by using
Binpac. With the help of Binpac, it is also easy to add new protocol
analyzer in Bro.

Hope this helps.
