Distributed and cooperative multi-agent based intrusion detection system


One of the primary challenges in intrusion detection is modeling typical application behavior, so that we can recognize attacks by their atypical effects without raising too many false alarms. IDS implemented using mobile agents is one of the new paradigms for intrusion detection. In this paper, we have proposed an effective intrusion detection system in which local agent collects data from its own system and it classifies anomaly behaviors using SVM classifier. Each local agent is capable of removing the host system from the network on successful detection of attacks. The mobile agent gathers information from the local agent before it allows the system to send data. Our system identifies successful attacks from the anomaly behaviors. Experimental results show that the proposed system has high detection rate and low false alarm rate which encourages the proposed system.
