Network Intrusion is any unauthorized activity on a computer network.  In an article by Isabell Gaylord from Cybersecurity Magazine on November 13, 2019 entitled, “Network Intrusion:  How To Detect And Prevent It”, she writes that detecting an intrusion depends on having a clear understanding of how the attacks work.

Some popular attack techniques include the following:

  1.  Multi-Routing
  2. Buffer Overflow Attacks
  3. Furtive Common Gateway Interface Scripts
  4. Protocol-Specific Attacks
  5. Traffic Flooring
  6. Trojan Horse Malware
  7. Worms

An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a device or software application that monitors a network or systems for malicious activity or policy violations and issues alert when it uncovers any such activity.  Furthermore, although intrusion detection systems monitor networks for suspicious or potentially malicious activity, they also look out for false alarms.
