Install Snort IDS on Balena Engine

Hello All,

I plan to install an Intrusion Detection System called Snort docker (URL: on an embedded PLC device that supports the balena engine. I could successfully test the Snort docker in a Linux docker environment. Now, I want to install and test the Snort docker on the balena engine. Does anyone have experience with installing a docker application on a balena engine? I would appreciate it if you could suggest steps to install a docker app on a balena engine.
