Abstract Over the last years the number of cyber-attacks has been constantly increasing. Since isolated Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) cannot cope with the number and sophistication of attacks, collaboration among the defenders is required. Collaborative IDSs (CIDSs) work by exchanging alert traffic to construct a holistic view of the monitored network. However, an adversary can utilize probe-response attacks to successfully detect CIDS's monitoring sensors. We discuss the practicability of such attacks, suggest improvements, and also propose novel techniques to reduce the effects of such attacks. Moreover, we present preliminary results in the applicability of the attacks and hints on performing such attacks in a well known CIDS.

On the Analysis & Generation of Synthetic Attacks for Intrusion Detection Systems

Master Thesis


Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) have established themselves as a mandatory line of defense for critical infrastructure. One main aspect during the development of an IDS is the evaluation and optimization of the detection algorithms. Currently there is no standardized model for the evaluation of the detection efficiency. A common approach has been the use of static datasets, but the publicly available datasets have flaws in many regards, like their actuality and the absence of up-to-date attacks.This creates challenges in terms of the reproducibility and the comparison of results.
