21. An Overview of Issues in Testing Intrusion Detection Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7007
Published: 7/11/2003
Authors: Peter M Mell, R Lippmann, Chung Tong Hu, J Haines, M Zissman
Abstract: While intrusion detection systems are becoming ubiquitous defenses in today's networks, currently we have no comprehensive and scientifically rigorous methodology to test the effectiveness of these systems. This paper explores the types of performa ...

Abstract: [Superseded by SP 800-40 Version 2.0 (November 2005):] Timely patching is critical to maintain the operational availability, confidentiality, and integrity of IT systems. However, fa ...

24. Intrusion Detection Systems
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-31
Published: 11/1/2001
Authors: Rebecca Bace, Peter M Mell
Abstract: [Superseded by NIST SP 800-94, Guide to Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS),] Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are software or hardware systems that automate the proce ...

25. A Denial-of-Service Resistant Intrusion Detection Architecture
Published: 10/1/2000
Authors: Peter M Mell, D G. Marks, Mark McLarnon
Abstract: As the capabilities of intrusion detection systems (IDS) advance, attackers may attempt to disable an organization's IDS before attempting to penetrate more valuable targets. As IDSs evolve into distributed systems withinterdependent components, they ...

26. Identifying Critical Patches With ICAT
Series: ITL Bulletin
Published: 7/1/2000
Author: Peter M Mell
Abstract: [For the latest information on vulnerabilities, see the National Vulnerability Database,]The NIST computer security division has created a searchable index containing 700 of the most important computer vulnerabilities. This index, called ...
