Location of Sensor in Network-Based Intrusion Detection and Prevention System
With the increase in networks connecting each and every computer, their security is gaining equal significance. An important problem to network services is cyber attacks. Intrusion detection is the act of detecting unwanted traffic on a network or a device. Intrusion prevention is the act of preventing or attempt to stop possible incidents. In this paper, the authors have discussed about network based intrusion detection and prevention system which can detect well known attacks and prevent the network service from cyber attack with emphasis on the location of sensors in the network.
