An IPS for Web Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This work presents an IPS for web applications that combines anomaly detection, misuse detection, and a prevention module. This approach provides a solution that produces a number of false positives and false negatives less than traditional solutions. The proposed system is also able to update the misuse and anomaly model according to feedback received by the security manager. Finally, in the system the anomaly model has been specifically designed for web applications. The authors implemented and experimented the system in a real service company. From the results arises an improvement with respect to other state-of-the-art WEB IDSs.
