With the expanse of the Internet and the increased reliance on computer networking technology for everyday business, the need to protect electronic data and communication from malicious attack has become increasingly critical. This paper addresses the rogue system problem, a significant threat in modern networks. A rogue system is a device installed within a network without the authorization or knowledge of network administrators, which is typically engaged in unauthorized activities. This paper presents analysis and solutions for rogue system threats within a cooperative distributed network environment and within various types of wireless environments. In addition, a tool is presented which enables high speed network packet logging, for the purpose of rogue system detection, using inexpensive equipment in a scalable distributed storage infrastructure.
