Intrusion Detection System specializing in the analysis of network traffic.
With the incredible growth of the Internet
has come a new aspect of network security, SNORT network-based IDS, or
intrusion detection systems. As the Internet continues to grow, so does the
potential for damage caused by crackersÂ—which is why intrusion detection
systems are so essential. In the recent past, solutions for overcoming
intrusions have included firewall
components such as packet filters
and proxy firewalls, but today such solutions are not enough. Firewalls, for
example, cannot detect back doors around the firewall. The security conditions
are even worse if proxy firewalls are not being used at all. Moreover, current
research suggests that more than half of all recorded breaches in industry,
government, and educational computer systems have been caused by an insider
legitimately behind the firewall. For all these reasons, companies have
recently started deploying intrusion
detection systems (IDS)
such as SNORT as an additional part of a networkÂ’s security architecture.
