With the rapid growth of the internet, an ever-increasing need for security to protect oneself from malicious outsiders has become a necessity. Today, adware, malware, firewall and antivirus software have become the usual way of protecting oneself. The diverse nature of the information provided by these systems suggests the need for a unifying managerial system such as APHIDS (a programmable hybrid intrusion detection system), whose primary function is to act as a middleware to correlate the information gathered from multiple types of preexisting security systems. In this paper we provide a description of improvements made to the initial APHIDS design in the form of an intelligent Policy agent and our ADCS (agent deployment and correlation script). We provide test results obtained by comparing the first generation of APHIDS against our enhanced intelligent extended system called APHIDS++ to show the performance benefits made.
