Main reason for the attack being introduced to the system is because of popularity of the internet. Information security has now become a vital subject. Hence, there is an immediate need to recognize and detect the attacks. Intrusion Detection is defined as a method of diagnosing the attack and the sign of malicious activity in a computer network by evaluating the system continuously. The software that performs such task can be defined as Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). System developed with the individual algorithms like classification, neural networks, clustering, etc. gives good detection rate and less false alarm rate. Recent studies show that the cascading of multiple algorithm yields much better performance than the system developed with the single algorithm.
