Full Description
With our society's growing dependency on information technology systems (IT), IT security is crucial. To properly respond to misuse or abusive activity in IT systems, one needs to establish the capability to detect and understand improper activity. Intrusion Detection Systems observe activity occurring in the IT system, record these observations in audit data, and analyze collected audit data to detect misuse. Collecting and processing audit data for misuse detection conflicts with expectations and rights of system users regarding their privacy. A viable solution is replacing personal data with pseudonyms in audit data. Privacy-Respecting Intrusion Detection introduces technical purpose binding, restricting the linkability of pseudonyms in audit data, to the amount required for misuse detection. Also, it limits the recovery of original personal data to pseudonyms involved in a detected misuse scenario. This book includes case studies with constructively validated solutions by providing algorithms.
