Integrating More Intelligence into Your IDS, Part 1

This article explores how artificial intelligence (AI) is influencing IDS development, and what capabilities a popular IDS has with respect to intelligent intrusion detection. Snort is the IDS in question and this article describes some of its features that users might not be taking advantage of that would allow the IDS to adapt to networks and detect anomalies. AI alleviates some of the security professionals' work load by first learning about a network and gauging reactions from a security professional to reduce false positives, and second, by adapting to changes in the network to identify new attacks.
