"Smart" Methods For Detecting Computer Network Intruders

Posted by Dale on Feb 26, 2002 at 11:18

The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) reports that about 250,000 break-ins into Federal computer systems were attempted in one year and 64 percent were successful. The number of attacks is doubling every year and the GAO estimates that only one to four percent of these attacks will be detected and only about one percent will be reported.

The new "smart" methods can collect information from a variety of sources within the network, "learn" the patterns typical of a perpetrator trying to gain a level of control similar to that of the people who legitimately operate the network, and make a reasoned prediction about whether the pattern represents intrusion or not.
