FSF

FSF is included in RockNSM to provide static file analysis on filetypes of interest.

Overview

FSF works in conjuction with the file extraction framework provided by Bro. Bro can be configured to watch for specific file (mime) types, as well as establishing max file sizes that will be extracted.

FSF uses a client-server model and can watch for new extracted files in the /data/fsf/ partition.

Management

Services

FSF is deployed as a systemd unit, called fsf. Normal systemd procedures apply here:

sudo systemctl start fsf
sudo systemctl status fsf
sudo systemctl stop fsf
sudo systemctl restart fsf

It can also be managed using the rockctl command.
