3.4.2.2  Passive Detection

Passive methods used by host based systems mirror those available on NIDSs, including:

  • Logging the event.

  • Emailing or instant messaging an administrator.

  • Paging an on-call administrator.

  • Displaying an on-screen alarm.

  • Sending an alert to a monitoring system.

  • Sending an SNMP trap to flag the event.

Passive HIDS

With passive detection, a HIDS will take the same types of actions as would a passive detection NIDS, when an attack is detected, like logging the event, notifying an administrator, displaying an alarm/alert, or sending an SNMP trap to a monitoring console.
