Intrusion Detection System

Intrusion Detection System
   Abbreviated IDS. A software package designed to detect specific actions on a network that are typical of an intruder or that might indicate an act of corporate espionage. An IDS package monitors the network or the server for specific "attack signatures" that might indicate an active intruder is attempting to gain access to the network; such actions are carefully documented by the system.
   Specific actions, such as opening or renaming certain important files, opening specific applications, downloading large amounts of data from key documents, or sending classified documents out as e-mail attachments, are also monitored by the IDS software.
   See also firewall.
