network Assessment Description
An intrusion detection system is essential for detecting threats and preventing vulnerability exploits.
After network mapping (enumeration and identification of network components), perform an attack on the network to test the intrusion detection system that was installed and configured.
- View “Intrusion Detection System (IDS) Lab – Installing Suricata” within the Video Playlist: Technology Implementation of Security Solutions, located in Class Resources.
- Install the Suricata software on Ubuntu. Configure its audit capabilities to monitor and analyze network traffic.
- Using GVM, implement an attack from Kali Linux to target Ubuntu.
- Provide screenshots of the Suricata installation steps and intrusion detection logs.
Write a 500- to 700-word lab report (to include all screenshots from Part 1) addressing the following:
- Summarize the issues encountered, lessons learned, and successes in a bullet point format.
- Describe the screenshots provided.
- Describe the methodologies used in network forensics. Include packet capture, deep packet inspection, and the analysis of protocols.
- Analyze and decipher network traffic, identify anomalous or malicious activity, and provide a summary of the effects on the system.
- Describe how analytic methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative, could leverage the IDS to predict and communicate network anomalies.
Make sure to support the report with at least 2 creditable resources other than the textbook.
