Intrusion Detection and Intrusion Prevention (IDS/IPS)

Analytical Research Project Instructions
This is a project describing the results of an analytical research project, worth 25% of your total grade. Your paper should be 10-12 pages, double-spaced, exclusive of cover, title page, table of contents, endnotes and bibliography. 

Topic Proposal Selection: Seprate paper 550 words double space page in 2 weeks

Prior to writing, you must submit a short, ungraded, topic proposal. You should submit your intended research topic first. The purpose of this preliminary milestone is to provide the opportunity to confirm the appropriateness of your proposed topic. It will be helpful if you include, with your proposed topic, the sort of research you intend to do and any specific sources you may have already found or plan to use in researching your topic. 
2.     Analytical Research Project: Seprate paper in 3 weeks
The purpose of the Research Project is to develop an in-depth understanding of the intrusion detection and/or prevention technology and the way in which such technology is used to protect specific computing environments against specific threats. To arrive at this understanding, your project may choose to follow either one of two analytical approaches:
1. Analysis of a tool or technique including functional applicability and limitations
2. Analysis of environmental security requirements and technologies to meet those requirements
