Characterizing Network Intrusion Prevention System

In the last few years, the Internet has experienced explosive growth. Along with the widespread evolution of new emerging services, the quantity and impact of attacks have been continuously increases, attackers continuously find vulnerabilities at various levels, from the network it self to Some of
and applications, exploit the to crack system and services. Defense system and network monitoring has becomes essential component of computer security to predict and prevent attacks. Unlike traditional Intrusion Detection System (IDS), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) has additional features to secure computer network system. In this paper, we present mapping problem and challenges of IPS. When this study was started in late 2000, there are some models and theories have been developed. Unfortunately, only a few works have done mapping the problem in IPS area, especially in hybrid mechanism. Throughout this paper, we summarize the main current methods and the promising and interesting future directions and challenges research field in IPS.
