This seminars is an initial foray into the relatively unexplored terrain of using Mobile Agents (MAs) for Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs). It is a deep search that helps identify the most promising areas of mobile agent IDS research. After providing some background information, enumerate the problems found in current IDSs and propose potential solutions offered by MAs. suggests innovative ways to apply agent mobility to address shortcomings of current IDS designs and implementations. then discuss performance advantages and disadvantages that occur when using MAs for IDSs. While the seminars focuses mostly on the benefits derived from mobility, also take into consideration the features gained from agent technology, such as autonomous components, which offer significant benefits.
