7. Zeek Integration

While Spicy itself remains application independent, transparent integration into Zeek has been a primary goal for its development from early on. While historically an external Zeek plugin was required to use Spicy parsers with Zeek, Zeek has now been shipping with built-in Spicy support since version 5.0. That means you can directly add new protocol, file, and packet analyzers to Zeek through Spicy without needing to write any further code. See Zeek’s Spicy documentation for more.
