I've got a security project regarding the intrusion detection and prevention. I've been googling about it but didn't land up on something substantial. I'm supposed to submit an abstract as of now, I'd like to know how an IDPS is implemented and what all things to keep in mind while deploying an IDSP. Also suggestions regarding the programming implementation are welcome. I'd be better if you can suggest some reading web-resources.
Well I'm just a final year student of B.tech Computer science and this id kind of a new experience for me. So please don't pre-assume anything.
