Michael Vogel and Sebastian Schmerl. Efficient Distributed Intrusion Detection applying Multi Step Signatures. In 17th GI/ITG Conference on Communication in Distributed Systems (KiVS 2011). Open Access Series in Informatics (OASIcs), Volume 17, pp. 188-193, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2011)


Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) offer valuable measures to cope with today’s attacks on computers and networks. But the increasing performance of networks and end systems and the growing complexity of IT systems lead to rapidly growing volumes of observation data and large signature bases. Therefore, IDS are forced to drop observations in high load situations offering chances to attackers to act undetectable. We introduce an efficient dynamically adaptable, distributed approach for a multi-step signature based IDS. Finally, we discuss initial performance evaluations of a prototype implementation and motivate future work scopes.
