Converts files with ipchains packet logs to SQL inserts
Packet2sql will convert any text file/log file which contains ipchains packet logs into a stream of SQL inserts. The SQL can be saved into a file and used as a query to any SQL-92 compliant database. This can even be done on-the-fly from syslogd directly to the database. The database can be used as a base for a firewall-analyzing application, to identify attack signatures, to share security information easily with other sites, and to extract the domains of logged attackers for whois.
