This paper presents a taxonomy of Intrusion Response Systems (IRS), classifying a number of research papers published during the past decade that provide one with many valuable insights into the field of Internet security. In recent years, the authors have seen impressive changes in how attackers gain access to systems and infect computers. They discuss the key features of IRS that are crucial for defending a system from attack. Choosing the right security measures and responses is an important and challenging part of designing an IRS. If they fail to do so, their automated response systems will reduce network performance and wrongly disconnect users from a network.
