 Preparing yourself for intrusions

"Modern intrusion detection covers a wide range of systems, functions, and tools. Some of these tools simply detect, log, or report intrusion attempts. Others respond to such attempts proactively. It's easiest to understand security as a multilayered issue. Firewalls and network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) make up the outer shells of a comprehensive security solution. In this article, we take a host-centric view of security, and thus view these external forms of intrusion detection as the outer layer of defense."
