The rapid proliferation of Internet and mobile computing applications has changed the landscape of network security. The recent denial of service attacks on major Internet sites have shown to the users, no open computer network is immune from intrusions. The traditional way of protecting networks with firewalls and encryption software is no longer sufficient and effective. In this paper, the authors are proposing signature based intrusion detection system, using multithreading technique. The multithreading approach will be used to handle network traffic. It takes the advantage of parallel processing on captured packets. They have described the proposal of their multithread based IDS system. They also suggested the algorithm which will help in updating the database which is used for IDS.
