The Future of IDSs
As shown here, the field of intrusion detection is still in its infancy. In addition, as hackers evolve, IDSs must attempt to keep pace. Table 14.1 lists future trends that pose threats to IDSs, and potential solutions.
|Encrypted traffic (IPsec)||Embed IDS throughout host stack|
|Increasing speed and complexity of attacks||Strict anomaly detection|
|Switched networks||Monitor each host individually|
|Increasing burden of data to interpret||Geometric display of data|
The following sections will examine each of these growing problems, along with a potential solution.
IPsec is becoming a popular standard for securing data over a network. IPsec ...
