Abstract

With the speedy growth of distributed networks such as Internet of Things (IoT), there is an increasing need to protect network security against various attacks by deploying collaborative intrusion detection systems (CIDSs), which allow different detector nodes to exchange required information and data with each other. While due to the distributed architecture, insider attacks are a big threat for CIDSs, in which an attacker can reside inside the network. To address this issue, designing an appropriate trust management scheme is considered as an effective solution. In this work, we first analyze the development of CIDSs in the past decades and identify the major challenges on building an effective trust management scheme. Then we introduce a generic framework aiming to enhance the security of CIDSs against advanced insider threats by deriving multilevel trust. In the study, our results demonstrate the viability and the effectiveness of our framework.
