This is a minor reliability release fixing a few issued reported for 0.6 release.

Sensei 0.6.1 fixes these issues reported by users who are using 0.6 release:

  • A check added to Interface Configuration menu, preventing Sensei from being assigned to an interface which is in use by Suricata. User interface now shows a Warning popup recommending a workaround to assign WAN interface to Suricata and Sensei to LAN interface.
  • In Proxmox/QEMU/KVM deployments, Sensei UI Configurator filters out virtio based ethernet interfaces. This check is to prevent an underlying problem with netmap-virtio which results in traffic forwarding to stop.
  • Web Filtering: Unknown sites – sites which Sensei categorization database did not have any information for – were not filtered. A patch has been applied to fix this problem.
  • Web Filtering: Undecided sites – sites which Sensei categorization database did not have the final decision for – were not filtered. A patch has been applied to fix this problem.
  • If filtering was enabled for some applications, you were not able to apply the new configuration. A patch has been applied to fix this problem.
