This paper presents a distributed wireless Intrusion Detection System (IDS) based on Intelligent agents. Intelligent agents are randomly traveled in difference nodes which are connected with the network. Each agent may perform specific tests (like mobile sensors). When the test indicates some possibility of an intrusion, the agent may ask for additional tests at the site. Only after the suspicion level has been raised too high, it triggers alarm to the security officer. Notice that the attack is confirmed by executing only relevant tests and the entire suite of tests does not have to remain resident at every node. The agents are traveled by means of random sampling method.
