Thanks, Seth.

So, I think ideally I'd like to be able to alert not solely upon
connection but upon a conversation as determined either at the app level
or a combination of other flow criteria that might indicate more then
just a scan is happening.

In a large, open, network getting hits from scans is less useful then it
might be in other environments.

I'll have a read over the tutorial and see where that gets me... Likely
more questions to follow ;-)

There is a script that we ship with Bro that gives you the ability to turn intel hits into notices based on a field in the intel data (more information can be found here: https://www.bro.org/bro-exchange-2013/exercises/intel.html).  If you have a solid idea of how you'd like things to work best for you, please let me know.  There are many ways we could make this work. ;)
