Wazuh Host and endpoint security


Wazuh is a security detection, visibility, and compliance open source project. It was born as a fork of OSSEC HIDS, and later was integrated with Elastic Stack and OpenSCAP.


  1. Log management and analysis: Wazuh agents read operating system and application logs, and securely forward them to a central manager for rule-based analysis and storage.
  2. File integrity monitoring: Wazuh monitors the file system, identifying changes in content, permissions, ownership, and attributes of files that you need to keep an eye on.
  3. Intrusion and anomaly detection: Agents scan the system looking for malware, rootkits or suspicious anomalies. They can detect hidden files, cloaked processes or unregistered network listeners, as well as inconsistencies in system call responses.
  4. Policy and compliance monitoring: Wazuh monitors configuration files to ensure they are compliant with your security policies, standards or hardening guides.



OSSEC HIDS is a Host-based Intrusion Detection System (HIDS) used for security detection, visibility, and compliance monitoring. It’s based on a multi-platform agent that forwards system data (e.g log messages, file hashes, and detected anomalies) to a central manager, where it is further analyzed and processed, resulting in security alerts. Agents convey event data to the central manager for analysis via a secure and authenticated channel.
