The continuously emerging, operationally and managerially independent, geographically distributed computer networks deployable in an evolutionarily manner have created greater challenges in securing them. Several research works and experiments have convinced the security expert that Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) or Network Intrusion Prevention Systems (NIPS) alone are not capable of securing the Computer Networks from internal and external threats completely. In this paper the authors present the design of Intrusion Collaborative System which is a combination of NIDS,NIPS, Honeypots, software tools like nmap, iptables etc. The Design is tested against existing attacks based on Snort Rules and several customized DDOS, remote and guest attacks.
