Userspace logging facility for Linux.

If you're running Linux firewall and need fast and reliable logging software, specter is for you. No kernel patches are needed - it works with standard ipt_ULOG netfilter target module. Being userspace application it introduces much lower security and stability risk than any kernel module. Keeping core simple and clean, specter's power lies in its plugins. You can not only define where the received packet data should go, but also how it should be interpreted. Although list of standard input and output plugins is wide, writing your own is a trivial task - code is vastly documented. All of these properties make specter an universal firewall logging utility.
