What are the types of intrusion detection system?

5 Different Types of Intrusion Detection Systems

 

Network Intrusion Detection System

“Understanding Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS)”
A Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) is a security tool that monitors network traffic in real-time to detect malicious activities such as unauthorized access, malware attacks, and data exfiltration. This type of IDS operates at the network layer and analyzes network packets to identify suspicious patterns or anomalies. NIDS can be deployed as a standalone appliance or as a software application running on a dedicated server. Some popular examples of NIDS include Snort, Suricata, and Bro.

 

Network Node Intrusion Detection System

“Exploring Network Node Intrusion Detection System (NNIDS)”
A Network Node Intrusion Detection System (NNIDS) is a specialized type of NIDS that focuses on protecting individual network devices such as routers, switches, and firewalls. NNIDS monitors the traffic flowing in and out of each network node to identify any signs of compromise. It can also detect misconfigurations or vulnerabilities in network devices that could be exploited by attackers. Popular NNIDS tools include Cisco’s Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor (NPM).

 

Host Intrusion Detection System

“Host Intrusion Detection System (HIDS) – An Overview”
A Host Intrusion Detection System (HIDS) is a security solution that monitors the activity of individual hosts or endpoints, such as desktops, laptops, or servers. HIDS software is installed on each host to analyze system logs, file changes, and other events for signs of suspicious activity. HIDS can detect malware infections, unauthorized access attempts, and insider threats that may go undetected by network-based IDS. Some popular HIDS tools include OSSEC, Tripwire, and McAfee Endpoint Security.

 

Protocol-Based Intrusion Detection System

“Understanding Protocol-Based Intrusion Detection System (PIDS)”
A Protocol-Based Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) is a security tool that focuses on detecting specific types of attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in network protocols. PIDS can identify abnormal network traffic patterns that may indicate the presence of an attack, such as buffer overflow attacks, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, or man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. PIDS is typically deployed as a software application running on a dedicated server or as a plugin for a network protocol analyzer tool such as Wireshark or tcpdump.

 

Application Protocol-Based Intrusion Detection System

“Application Protocol-Based Intrusion Detection System (APIDS) – A Deep Dive”
An Application Protocol-Based Intrusion Detection System (APIDS) is a specialized type of PIDS that focuses on detecting attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in specific applications or services. APIDS can detect attacks on web applications, email servers, database servers, and other types of application servers. APIDS uses signature-based or behavior-based detection methods to identify attacks and generate alerts. Some popular APIDS tools include ModSecurity, SnortApp, and Bro-IDS.
