Building a VMware sensor

To run a sensor in a VMware environment you will need to build a VMware image. This is basically just a Debian installation within VMware and the surfids-sensor package installed. There's not much more to it.

Building process

  • Download Debian stable net install iso.
  • Load the iso in the CD/DVD drive of your VM.
  • Boot up the VM.
  • Now follow the installation instructions for the sensor.
  • Additionally, when you are finished with the installation, you can install the VMware tools.
