Incident Reaction Based on Intrusion Detections’ Alert Analysis

Incident Reaction Based on Intrusion Detections’ Alert Analysis

The protection of internetworked systems by cryptographic techniques have crystallized as a fundamental aspect in establishing secure systems. Complementary, detection mechanisms for instance based on Intrusion Detection Systems has established itself as a fundamental part in holistic security eco-systems in the previous years. However, the interpretation of and reaction on detected incidents is still a challenging task. In this paper an incident handling environment with relevant components and exemplary functionality is proposed that involves the processes from the detection of incidents over their analysis to the execution of appropriate reactions. An evaluation of a selection of implemented interacting components using technology such as OpenFlow or Snort generally proofs the concept.
