The goal of distributed intrusion detection system is to analyze events on the network and identify attacks. The increasing number of network security related incidents makes it necessary for organizations to actively protect their sensitive data with the installation of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs). There is a difficulty to find intrusion in a distributed network segment from inside as well as from outside network. Intrusion detection system studies very huge amount of data in a network. Intrusion detection system also checks that load additional significant is not placed in the system and also not placed in network of monitoring. The centralized intrusion detection system has certain drawbacks which later on come with the idea of mobile agent. There is no central point of failure because there is no central station in an agent based intrusion detection system. Agents can detect malicious activity.
