Innate-Inspired Automated Intrusion Response Mechanism for a Network Intrusion Detection System
Research in intrusion detection systems has in the past concentrated much on detection mechanisms where alerts are produced in large numbers and require human analysis and intervention. With an ever increasing number of services available over computer networks, the numbers of attacks reported have also been on the increase. Thus, mechanisms capable of providing automated intrusion response are now in higher demand than ever before. Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) have been explored as one possible approach to building effective intrusion detection systems.
