Executive Summary

Data collection is a critical but difficult activity for intrusion detection. The amount of resources that must be monitored and the rate at which events are generated makes it impossible to use an exhaustive collection strategy. Furthermore, selection and configuration of data collection mechanisms is a tedious and elaborate task for both designers and operators. Therefore, they propose a Decision Support System (DSS) for selecting and configuring data collection mechanisms. They suggest a generic system model for selecting data collection mechanisms based on the amount of excess data produced. They also provide an implementation of the system. The DSS reduces effort, time, and expertise required in the selection process.
