Introduction to Intrusion Detection

Aurobindo Sundaram

Feb 09, 1996


Over the last 3-4 years, the networking revolution has finally come of age. With vast financial possibilities opening up, the dangers of subversive action have become greater and greater. Often, intruders use vulnerabilities in the OS or application programs to compromise the security of systems. While we cannot realistically hope to prevent all such attacks and vulnerabilities, it is important that we be able to detect these subversive activities so that we may take preventive action, track down intruders and use the data gathered to try and prevent such happenings in the future. My talk will give an introduction to intrusion detection and why it is necessary; I will talk about the different types of IDS's and their advantages and disadvantages. From there on, it's pretty much where the audience wants it to go.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
