Custom signature for TOR Application


I want to create custom signature to produce alert whenever any machine lunches TOR application, i have searched and found that there already two signatures cretaed 5816/0 5816/1, i have enabled them and tested it did not fire.

I have ips in promoscous mode monitoring all vlans, working normally. I dont have ssl interception @ any device, so once TOR is establish then i dont have visibilty over the traffic.

i need help in creating usch signature, i have took wireshark capture of traffic and all i can see on application layer is proxy connect and proxy port (see attached)

thanks for your help.
