The Inter-Organisational Intrusion Detection System (IOIDS) is a peer-based communication plattform (GRID) for sharing computer incident related information across organisational boundaries.

For my PhD at the university of Glamorgan I was researching into this topic and the prototype implementation was an outcome of my research there.

The Inter-Organisational Intrusion Detection System is coming in 2 parts, namely the subjacent communication infrastructure G4DS and the actual implementation of IDS data exchange IOIDS:

A few more programs and libraries had to be created to make the whole thing working. These ones are:

I re-imported the entire code to a GIT repository - to browse or carry on with development. From there you may also download the entire code of the project in a single archive.

This project has intially been carried out as a PhD research project by me. Many thanks to my supervisor Dr. Andrew Blyth for his great support throughout the entire project life time.
