31. Applying Mobile Agents to Intrusion Detection and Response
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6416
Published: 10/1/1999
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Athanasios T Karygiannis, D G. Marks, Peter M Mell
Abstract: Effective intrusion detection capability is an elusive goal, not solved easily or with a single mechanism. However, mobile agents go a long way toward realizing the ideal behavior desired in an Intrusion Detection System (IDS). This report is an init ...

32. Securing Web Servers
Series: ITL Bulletin
Published: 9/21/1999
Authors: Peter M Mell, David F Ferraiolo
Abstract: This ITL Bulletin enumerates and describes techniques by which one can secure web servers. It categorizes the techniques into security levels to aid in their cost-effective application.

33. Mobile Agent Attack Resistant Distributed Hierarchical Intrusion Detection Systems
Published: 9/8/1999
Authors: Peter M Mell, Mark McLarnon
Abstract: Distributed intrusion detection systems are especially vulnerable to attacks since, typically, each component resides at a static location and components are connected together into a hierarchical structure. An attacker can disable such a system by ...

34. Computer Attacks: What They Are and How to Defend Against Them
Series: ITL Bulletin
Published: 5/26/1999
Author: Peter M Mell
Abstract: Although a host of technologies exists to detect and prevent attacks against computers, a human must coordinate responding to a successful network penetration. At the same time, the majority of systems administrators are not prepared to handle a soph ...

35. Understanding the Global Attack Toolkit Using a Database of Dependent Classifiers
Published: 11/5/1998
