How can I chop that content and pass it to the db-parser??
Also how to handle different values like if authentication method can be
password, public key, none, keyboard interactive. How do I put the values
in the pattern-db rule.do I keep adding them in example tag of the rule..

Thankyou very much for the quick response.

I m a trying to get onboard :)
