Query about monitoring unknown Internet traffic

Let me add few points,

-> span traffic in/out of the system on network layer and give promiscuous
traffic for snort to scan.

-> for correlated analysis use siem i.e splunk

-> gather l4 stats using netflows tools i.e silk opensource

-> perhaps ubuntu is working on auto update?

-> If you have threat intelligence feed give it to check list of bad ips if
communication is made. Can it checked on system level or network at
firewall also.

Hope it helps.
