Probably <http://www.intersectalliance.com/projects/Snare/>, which is
the first hit on google when you search for "snare linux".

I don't think that it is included in CentOS - and looking at the file
list at Sourceforge gives me the shivers: The kernel there is more than
stone old and has several security problems.

So please check if the machine you have it running on does have a more
recent kernel than 2.6.9-5.0.5.
