The research on distributed intrusion detection system (DIDS) is a rapidly growing area of interest because the existence of centralized intrusion detection system (IDS) is increasingly unfit for the current network circumstance. So we have designed a distributed intrusion detection system prototype, based on mobile agents. Our agents travel between systems in a network, obtain information, analyze and deal with correlative information and send alarm to the manager or user of the DIDS. Since the mobility of the intrusion detection component, the system security and flexibility have been greatly improved, and also the defense capacity of the system is increased.
