Due to a growing number of intrusion events and also because the Internet and local networks have become so ubiquitous, organizations are increasingly implementing various systems that monitor IT security breaches. This is the second article devoted to these systems. The previous article dealt with IDS categorization and architecture. At this point we will provide further in depth guidance. This includes an overview of the classification of intrusion detection systems and introduces the reader to some fundamental concepts of IDS methodology: audit trail analysis and on-the-fly processing as well as anomaly detection and signature detection approaches. We will also discuss the primary intrusion detection techniques.
Microsoft SQL Server is a popular and robust environment for many applications that use databases – it features excellent multi-access capabilities, comprehensive security coverage and can easily be transported to other database platforms. This article aims to identify certain types of risks that might result from inappropriate management of the Microsoft SQL Server.
Due to a growing number of intrusions and since the Internet and local networks have become so ubiquitous, organizations increasingly implementing various systems that monitor IT security breaches. Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are those that have recently gained a considerable amount of interest. This is an introductory article to this topic. It gives an overview of several types of detectable attacks, symptoms that help in intrusion detection, describes IDS tasks, different architectures and concepts in this field.
