Summary: Abstract--Intrusion detection is a mechanism used to detect
various attacks on a wired or wireless network. Port scanning is
one of the dangerous attacks that intrusion detection tries to
detect. Snort, a famous network intrusion detection system
(NIDS), detects a port scanning attack by combining and
analyzing various traffic parameters. Because these parameters
cannot be easily combined using a mathematical formula, fuzzy
logic can be used to combine them; fuzzy logic can also reduce the
number of false alarms. This paper presents a novel approach,
based on fuzzy logic, to detect port scanning attacks. A fuzzy logic
controller is designed and integrated with Snort in order to
enhance the functionality of port scanning detection. Experiments
are carried out in both wired and wireless networks. The results
show that applying fuzzy logic adds to the accuracy of
determining bad traffic. Moreover, it gives a level of degree for
each type of port scanning attack.
