Abstract: Network security technology has become crucial in protecting government and industry computing infrastructure. . In recent years, intrusion detection systems (IDSs) have demonstrated high accuracy, good generalization to novel types of intrusion, and robust behaviour in a changing environment. Still, significant challenges exist in design and implementation of production quality IDSs. There are various problems which the existing intrusion detection system models have, such as more significant network transmission load, lower detection efficiency, and limited data process ability. This paper presents an intrusion detection module based on honeypot technology, which utilizes IP Traceback technique and mobile agents. By using the mobile agents, this module has the capability of distributed detection and response. By the use of honeypot technology the intrusion source can be traced to the farthest.
