This paper presents the major network attack profiles, taxonomies, classification and identification frameworks. Further, current approaches for intrusion detection on networks were x-rayed though, with emphasis on Denial of Service (DoS) attacks only. The concept of intelligent agents and subsequently adaptive systems was elucidated, the properties derived were used as a proof of concept, and then applied in the development of a model for an adaptive intelligent multi-agent for network protection, against denial of service attacks.
