 Evaluating Network Intrusion Detection Signatures

Security Focus talks about evaluating network intrusion detection signatures.

"So how can we test the NID signatures? The trick lies not in focusing on the signatures, but instead in focusing on the potential attacks. We may not have much information on the characteristics of signatures, but there is a wealth of information available on attacks, vulnerabilities and exploits. We should determine what threats are important for our environment, and then design and execute NID tests that address those threats."
