Question Distro for Bro, Wireshark and nmap AKA Network analasys

Hi all,

I'm interested in networking and I wish to set up a system that can analyse my daily traffic activities so I better can understand the inner workings of networking.

I tried Downloading Debian 9, but unfortunately, it does not support Bro (see this). It is an Intrusion Detection System (IDS), so therefore rather essential to network analyses.

Debian 8 is supported though, but I can't seem to find a full .iso download on the official Debian site. Is it still being maintained?

According to Bro (see this) a lot of ubuntu releases are supported, but I don't wish to have ANY kind of commercial software pre installed on the system (I'm talking about Amazon here).

I also need to run Wireshark and nmap.

Wich distro would you recommend to serve me best for my networking analyses purposes?

The link in your distribution says that CentOS7 & OpenSUSE leap(42.x) is supported via repositories.. Give them a shot maybe ?

Debian 8 is here ->
OpenSUSE 42.3 is here ->
