Protection profile analysis and security target for an intrusion detection system
2003 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
The main aim of the thesis is to analyze the Intrusion Detection System System Protection Profile that is used to identify the lowest common set of security functional and assurance requirements addressed by an Intrusion Detection System. Furthermore, the thesis outlines a possible Security Target for an Intrusion Detection System that can be used to express the security requirements for a specific product or system. In order to achieve these ends, the work is carried out by firstly creating a general security requirement framework for an Intrusion Detection System, which is done through examining research efforts on standardizing intrusion detection systems, investigating other academic studies on securing an Intrusion Detection System, choosing some intrusion detection system products on the open market and exploring their technologies applied in securing an Intrusion Detection System. Secondly, based on the general security requirement model produced by theoretical analysis and practical implementations, together with the functional and assurance requirements provided by the Common Criteria, to inspect and analyze the Intrusion Detection System System Protection Profile. Thirdly, discussions of implementations of security requirements in the Security Target for an Intrusion Detection System are mainly built on the information provided by available products. The results of the work are propositions, extensions and improvements based on the Intrusion Detection System System Protection Profile. The guidance of the Security Target is described and there is also a discussion of its pragmatic feasibilities. The work is expected to contribute to the field of standardizing Intrusion Detection Systems.
