Abstract
Attacks on computer infrastructure are increasing as the Internet expands and as more and more networks connect to the Internet. Because many computer systems are vulnerable to attack, intrusion detection (ID) is a rapidly developing field. Implementing intrusion detection systems requires a broad understanding of computer security. Research in this area requires an understanding of the current intrusion detection mechanisms and of the attacks ID systems are trying to prevent. The rate of change in network technology makes this a non-trivial probelm. Many ID products started out addressing single solutions. However network complexity is driving vendors to integrate various approaches to solve a broader range of computer security problem. This report provides some guidelines that will assist IO Section personnel in familiarizing themselves with the subject. It includes suggestions for short-term research, longest term research and a bibliography of current literature on the subject.
