The number of hacking and intrusion incidents is increasing alarmingly each year as new technology rolls out. Unfortunately in today's digitally connected world, there is no place to hide. DNS, NSlookup, Newsgroups, web site trawling, e-mail properties etc. are just some of the many ways in which one can be found. In this research project designs and builds an Intrusion Detection System (IDS) that implements pre-defined algorithms for identifying the attacks over a network. The Java programming language is used to develop the system, JPCap must be used to provide access to the winpcap. The packets in the network are captured online i.e., as they come on the interface of the network.
