Home Network Setup

11-17-2021 Written by: ott3r

This will be a multi-part series explaining how I set up my home network as shown above. Serials will likely be broken down as follows. 

  1. Getting basic network up and running. Will include setting up the ATT gateway to be used with pfSense firewall, Netgear switch, and Nighthawk router in access point mode
  2. Installing Suricata inside pfSense as an IDS
  3. Setting up Raspberry Pi to host Graylog, Elasticsearch, and Grafana for data visualizations
  4. Tweaking settings inside pfSense and Graylog server to pull IDS logs
  5. Setting up Grafana dashboard for IDS visualization

As this progresses there might be a few pieces I missed. As they are released I will link blog posts to this article. 

That's it for now. Stay tuned for part one coming up in the next few days.
