Abstract-- We investigate the basic trade-offs, analysis and
decision processes involved in information security and intrusion
detection, as well as possible application of game theoretic
concepts to develop a formal decision and control framework. A
generic model of a distributed intrusion detection system (IDS)
with a network of sensors is considered, and two schemes based
on game theoretic techniques are proposed. The security warning
system is simple and easy-to-implement, and it gives system
administrators an intuitive overview of the security situation in
the network. The security attack game, on the other hand, models
and analyzes attacker and IDS behavior within a two-person,
nonzero-sum, noncooperative game with dynamic information.
Nash equilibrium solutions in closed form are obtained for
specific subgames, and two illustrative examples are provided.
