With the growing Information Systems and Network technologies, security threats over the systems have also become common. Providing a security mechanism to detect such threats has become an inevitable part of Information Systems. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is one of the most common attacks which are done in a co-ordinated manner. Hence, the authors need a Distributed Intrusion Detection System to detect those attacks. They use mobile agents for the purpose of Intrusion Detection.
