7. Configuration

Here are a list of variables which should be defined in your configuration script (normally `~/.impostrc')


    When Impost reads a message that exceeds `MESSAGE_TRIGGER_SIZE' in length - it will trigger a detection and cause Impost to analyze the buffer more intensely.


    Logging is enabled when `ENABLE_LOGGING' is one; or disabled if zero. Log messages are written to the file set in `LOGFILE'.


    This controls how much memory is allocated for the buffer which will contain incoming messages. If a message exceeds this value, it will be read as a second buffer.


    This is the directory where Impost will create a log-file containing the message history if a detection is triggered.


    Location of the shellcode definitions file. You need to enter the exact filename - this is a required file.
