IDS interoperability and correlation using IDMEF and commodity systems
Carey, Nathan, Clark, Andrew, & Mohay, George (2002) IDS interoperability and correlation using IDMEF and commodity systems. In Fourth International Conference on Information and Communications Security, 9-12 December 2002, Singapore.
Over the past decade Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) have been steadily improving their efficiency and effectiveness in detecting attacks. This is particularly true with signature-based IDS due to progress in attack analysis and attack signature specification. At the same time system complexity, overall numbers of bugs and security vulnerabilities have increased. This has led to the recognition that in order to operate over the entire attack space, multiple IDS must be used, which need to interoperate with one another, and possibly also with other components of system security. This paper describes an experiment in IDS interoperation using the Intrusion Detection Message Exchange Format for the purpose of correlation analysis and in order to identify and address the problems associated with the effective use and management of multiple IDS. A study of the process of intrusion analysis demonstrates the benefits of multi-IDS interoperation and cooperation, as well as the significant benefits provided by alert analysis using a central relational database.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
