An intrusion detection system (IDS) is a device or software application that monitors a network or system for malicious activity. The most common classification is either in the network (NIDS) or host-based (HIDS) intrusion detection systems, in reference to what is monitored by the IDS. Network-based intrusion detection attempts to identify unauthorized, illicit, and anomalous behavior based solely on network traffic. A network IDS, using either a network tap, span port, or hub collects packets that traverse a given network. Using the captured data, the IDS system processes and flags any suspicious traffic. One approach to classify attacks is using an anomaly detection method based on machine learning algorithms. Students involve reading and writing papers regarding the basis and state-of-the-art of IDS, especially in the anomaly detection domain.


Basics of IT security


The goal for students is to be acquainted with methods, algorithms, and technologies in intrusion detection systems, how to identify malicious activities and how to address the challenges in this domain.
