Abstract:

This research concerns information security and computer-network defense. It addresses how to handle the information of log files and intrusion-detection systems to recognize when a system is under attack. But the goal is not the usual one of denying access to the attacker but providing a justification for deceptive actions to fool the attacker. We implemented a simple demonstration of how two different kinds of open-source intrusion-detection systems can efficiently pool data for this purpose.
