Intrusion Alert Correlation to Support Security Management
To support information security, organizations deploy Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) that monitor information systems and networks, generating alerts for every suspicious behavior. However, the huge amount of alerts that an IDS triggers and their low-level representation make the alerts analysis a challenging task. In this paper, we propose a new approach based on hierarchical clustering that supports intrusion alert analysis in two main steps. First, it correlates historical alerts to identify the most typical strategies attackers have used. Then, it associates upcoming alerts in real time according to the strategies discovered in the first step. The experiments were performed using a real data set from the University of Maryland. The results show that the proposed approach can provide useful information for security administrators and may reduce the time between a security event and the response.
