Network security is an ongoing concern for many businesses, governments and individuals looking to protect their information assets. This work aims to address the capabilities of current generation intrusion detection/prevention systems with a specific focus on metrics of interest to the “Game Theoretic Approaches to Cyber Defense” research being headed by Dr. Musacchio at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Further, it is also a hope that this paper will serve as a reference to those interested in understanding what knowledge can be extracted from and evaluated by intrusion detection/prevention systems.
