It's not supported anymore. We used to have native support for Endace
cards but it hadn't been maintained for a while and was thus removed.
Thst said, it shouldn't be that hard to add it back now through an
external plugin (plugins are in Bro 2.4). It would just take somebody
familiar with the API.

That said, I am finding some indications that Bro can support the Endace card API directly if you compile with “--with-DAG=/path/to/dagtool/installation” but this seemed to be experimental long ago, and rumors circulated of it being dropped at some point.  I can’t seem to find any indication in the official docs about retained or dropped support native Endace card support.  The official changelog only cites the introduction of experimental support long ago.
