Strategic Sensor Placement for Intrusion Detection in Network-Based IDS

Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDSs) can be composed of a potentially large number of sensors, which monitor the traffic flowing in the network. Deciding where sensors should be placed and what information they need in order to detect the desired attacks can be a demanding task for network administrators, one that should be made as automatic as possible. Some few works have been done on positioning sensors using attack graph analysis, formal logic-based approach and Network Simulator NS2 which were studied to determine a strategy for sensors placement on the network.
