The rapidly increasing array of Internet - scale threats is a pressing problem for every organization that utilizes the network. Organizations often have limited resources to detect, and respond to these threats. The sharing of information related to probes and attacks is a facet of an emerging trend toward collaborative security." Collaborative security mechanisms provide network administrators with a valuable tool in this increasingly hostile environment. The perceived benefit of a collaborative approach to intrusion detection is threefold: greater clarity about attacker intent, precise models of adversarial behavior, and a better view of global network attack activity.
