Background: Host-based IDS (HIDS) is an Intrusion Detection System that monitors only data that it is directed to, or data that originated on the system where HIDS is installed. In addition to monitoring a network’s traffic to detect attacks, HIDS is also capable of monitoring other system parameters of the system (processes, file system access and integrity, and user logins). These records help in discovering and identifying malicious activity.
