Currently my interests are in Intrusion Detection
systems and Network Management.
For the past few years I have been co-chair of the IETF
Intrusion Detection Working Group (IDWG).
This working group has created a set of specifications for
a common intrusion alert format (IDMEF) and a secure application level
transport protocol (IDXP) to move IDMEF messages around a network.
This work has been support in part by DARPA and The Aerospace
My current efforts are twofold: implementation
of the IDWG specifications
integration of security systems and network management systems.
