|Summary : NIDS (Network Intrusion Detection System) components
|Description : |
Libnids is a library that provides a functionality of one of NIDS
(Network Intrusion Detection System) components, namely E-component.
It means that libnids code watches all local networktraffic, cooks
received datagrams a bit (quite a bit ;)), and provides convinient
information on them to analyzing modules of NIDS. Libnids performs:
a) Assembly of TCP segments into TCP streams
b) IP defragmentation
c) TCP port scan detection
More technical info can be found in MISC file.
So, if you intend to develop a custom NIDS, you don\'t have to build
low-level network code. If you decide to use libnids, you have got
E-component ready - you can focus on implementing other parts of NIDS.
