Suricata Language Server
10-19, 13:35–13:40 (Europe/Luxembourg), Salle Europe

Writing Suricata signatures is seen by some as a form of art and my most as a nightmare. This talk will introduce Suricata Language Server that is an implementation of LSP to get syntax checking and performance hints from your IDE when writing Suricata signatures.


Suricata Language Server (SLS) is released under the GPLv3 license and is known to work on most editors including vim, neovim, emacs, kate and Visual code.
