IDS Evasion Techniques

There is no doubt that Intrusion Detection Systems should be incorporated into any security
infrastructure, however today’s IDS implementations are far from perfect. Security Managers should continue to add layers to their defense strategy and not place too much reliance on this technology, as it’s not easy to create a system that can effectively flag an attack without crashing under the weight of its own logs, operate relatively maintenance free and respond appropriately to benign anomalous events without raising too many
false alarms.

This session discusses some of the most common techniques meant to evade IDS detection order to easily attack the infrastructure sitting behind those systems.
