  • But I am bit unclear to start with raspberry pi so isn't it good to take a suggestion from those who have some experience working with hardware of this type. I am shaking before a start and wants to get some prior confidence. if you people don't share your experience then who would. – R.Imran Aug 17 '17 at 20:35

A simple Google search revealed this (for a Raspberry Pi 2):

The installation for Bro IDS is straightforward on the Raspberry Pi, and is no different than any other UNIX-style system. First, there are a few prerequisites to install, all of which are available via apt-get. Once those have been completed, you can simply download the latest source code, prepare the environment, build, and install (configure, make, make install).


So the answer is yes you can have IDS and Bro on a Raspberry Pi 2.
