Suricata RPM for EL and CentOS 7

[2016-07-25: This information is no longer valid, header over to for up to date links.]

I’ve taken the Suricata package as found in Fedora and rebuilt it for CentOS 7. This should be similar to how the package would exist in EPEL (and hopefully it makes its way there).

To get the package with yum, first install the yum repository package (note: you must already have EPEL installed):

rpm -Uvh

then install Suricata:

yum install suricata

To just get the package, head over to

  1. Yes, of course. Like I said, its just a rebuild of the Fedora package. The only real difference luajit not being supported as that is not in CentOS 7 or EPEL. But otherwise I plan to keep it in sync with the Fedora package, until such a time it may end up in EPEL.
