Design And Development Of Intrusiondetection And Prevention System For Lan Based Networks
Nowadays, Internet and network technology have been growing rapidly, people are shifting towards the new technologies for various reasons. Although the growing technologies make life easier, one of the greatestproblemsof using those technologies is providing security against cyberattacks, security breaches and data leakages. Networks are more prone to the attacks because of vulnerabilities. Since, there are many techniques available nowadays for providing maximum security to networks. While considering the growth of network security many students are willing to build their career in networking and this could be possible while learning practically. So, we present a network based “Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) for LAN based networks”, which can efficiently detect many types of well-known network attacks and can immediately prevent the network system from the unauthorized access by providing security.Our approach is simple and efficient and can be implemented with some available opensource application such as GNS 3, Snort, Nmap, Wireshark, and Cisco Packet Tracer. The implementation of IDPS is done by using Rule based algorithm with Snort-rules and test for various simulated LAN based networks. This system will be the efficient and affordable learning platform for students to learn practically about network security.
