Abstract

Today Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are becoming one of the most important tools for intranet security. Research regarding Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) has become more active with the recent increases in illegal accesses to computer systems. Many researchers focus only on the techniques or mechanisms for detecting intrusions automatically, without considering the security of IDSs themselves. When an intruder attacks and breaks into a system, he or she often deletes system logs and stops auditing processes. Thus, the security of an intrusion detection system is an important aspect of intrusion detection. This study explores the methods for increasing effectiveness in configurations of an IDS for obtaining maximum effects in security in an intranet. We also discuss the hurdles that have blocked successful measurements in this area and present suggestions for improving effectiveness of an IDS.
