Intrusion detection and prevention system using secure mobile agents
2008 (English)In: SECRYPT - Int. Conf. Secur. Cryptography, Proc., 2008, 107-113 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper describes design and architecture of the intrusion detection and prevention system based on secure mobile agents along with the analysis of commercial products and current research efforts in the area. Once system will be operational it will be the first comprehensive real-life application using mobile agents that will not only provide security to network resources but also provide security and protection to the mobile agents system itself. The system efficiently solves several problems with the existing IDS/IPS solutions: it can detect new vulnerabilities, it can process and filter large volumes of logs, it reacts to intrusions in real-time, provides protection against unknown attacks, supports and improves IDS/IPS commercial products by different vendors, and handles software patches. The system not only improves the existing IDS/IPS solutions, but it also eliminates several of their core problems. In addition, it is self-protected by full encryption, both mobile agents and their platforms, and therefore not vulnerable to attacks against its own components and resources.
