Monitor and track suspicious activity on your hosts

A host-based intrusion detection system (HIDS) is a security tool that monitors and analyzes the system and network activity on a single host to detect any suspicious behavior that could indicate an attempted cyber-attack. The HIDS monitors various aspects of the host, such as system logs, system and application files, and network traffic, to identify any anomalies or deviations from normal activity.

When the HIDS detects suspicious activity, it generates an alert that is logged in the system’s security event logs. The HIDS may also trigger other security measures, such as blocking suspicious activity or isolating the affected system from the network, to prevent the attack from spreading.

Some common types of suspicious activity that a HIDS might monitor include:

  • Unauthorized access or attempts to access restricted resources
  • Modification of system or application files
  • Unauthorized network connections or traffic
  • Unusual system or network activity, such as a sudden increase in network traffic or unexpected changes in system configurations

To effectively track suspicious activity on your hosts, it is important to regularly review the security event logs and respond to any alerts generated by the HIDS. This can help you identify and mitigate any potential threats to your systems and networks.
