The dependence on information technology became critical and IT infrastructure, critical data, intangible intellectual property are vulnerable to threats and attacks. Organizations install Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) to alert suspicious traffic or activity. IDS generate a large number of alerts and most of them are false positive as the behavior construe for partial attack pattern or lack of environment knowledge. Monitoring and identifying risky alerts is a major concern to security administrator. The present work is to design an operational model for minimization of false positive alarms, including recurring alarms by security administrator. The architecture, design and performance of model in minimization of false positives in IDS are explored and the experimental results are presented with reference to lab environment.
