Enhanced Intrusion Detection Systems in Ad Hoc Networks Using a Grid Based Agnostic Middleware
With the increasing popularity of the wireless Ad Hoc networks, the security issue for mobile hosts could be even more serious than one expects. The intrinsic vulnerable characteristics of mobile networks, without a fixed underlying infrastructure, are the low rejection to unauthorized intrusions. This paper focuses on a Grid based Intrusion Detection System (G-IDS). The paper presents a new architecture that uses the basic principles of the Grid computing and apply them to the intrusion detection mechanisms, in order to protect networks characterized by the constantly changing of the topology.
