An IDPS monitors network traffic for signs of a possible attack. When it detects potentially dangerous activity, it takes action to stop the attack. Often this takes the form of dropping malicious packets, blocking network traffic or resetting connections. The IDPS also usually sends an alert to security administrators about the potential malicious activity. Signature-based detection looks for signs of known exploits. When it finds activity associated with a previously identified attack, it takes action to block the attack.

Practical informatics Course description: The course provides an overview of methods for detection of security violations in computer systems. Such techniques allow a swift response to security incidents and complement traditional preventive security mechanisms.
The specific topics to be covered include: Main classes of attacks against computer systems Taxonomy and architecture of intrusion detection systems Network traffic analysis and feature extraction algorithms Signature and anomaly based detection algorithms Malicious software and its main operating principles Detection, monitoring and analysis of malicious software Examination and grades: Diploma students can request an examination on this course in a usual manner and in any reasonable combination with another course.
An exercise certificate will be issued at the end of the semester. The next three assignments constitute a mini-project in which work will be carried in groups of students. The last assignment is a live contest in which the systems developed by teams will be tested on previously unseen data.
All assignments will be weighted equally. Up-to-date information can be found at the exercise page. Announcements The lecture on The exercise meeting on Lecture Schedule.
Intrusion Detection & Prevention
Executive Editor, ITworld security. A: I work in intrusion detection day-to-day and have put together a course on this topic that I teach quite often. I even started hesitating listing the names of some of these books in the bibligraphy section of my course materials, fearing that I might be doing course attendees a disservice. This is what started me thinking about writing a book on this subject. Does this book fill a need that others have failed to fill? Please explain. Now offering a day free trial!
