In today’s society people become more and more dependent on computer systems. It is therefore vital that such systems are up and running at all times. One factor that has the power to destroy the availability is computer network attacks (CNA). (CNA are defined as "methods aimed at destroying, altering or obstructing information in computers, computer networks or the networks themselves"). Unfortunately, the Internet show an increasing trend regarding the usage of malicious activities such as intrusion attempts, denial-of-service attacks, phishing, spamming and worms. Some automated attacks can compromise a large number of computers in a short period of time. To try to minimize this threat, it would be nice to have a security system which has the ability to detect new attacks and react on them. This work focuses on seeing how good IDS rules that can be generated automatically based on data logged by a simple honypot. The result will be based on data collected by a network intrusion detection system named SNORT, a low-interaction honeypot named honeyd and a vulnerability scanner named Nessus.
