Free registration required

Executive Summary

The increasing number of network security related incidents makes it necessary for organizations to actively protect their sensitive data with the installation of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). Autonomous software agents, especially when equipped with mobility, promise an interesting design approach for such applications. The authors evaluate the implications of applying mobile agent technology to the field of intrusion detection and present a distributed Intrusion Detection System (IDS) based on mobile agents that considers large-scale network environment in order to monitor multiple hosts connected via a network as well as the network itself.
