Distributed Intrusion Detection Using Mobile Agents

Authors(1) :-

DIDMA (Distributed Intrusion Detection using Mobile Agents) is a novel architecture in the field of IDS (Intrusion Detection Systems), utilizing an agent-based approach in order to realize a distributed framework. The novelty in this architecture is the employment of mobile agents as its auditing components. This novel approach overcomes certain problems associated with traditional designs in IDS. In particular, problematic areas such as high-speed networks, not visible traffic, and fail-open architecture have been successfully managed. Moreover, the fault tolerant decentralized design of DIDMA clearly demonstrated resilience against active attacks.
