Abstract

In the context of early warning systems for detecting Internet worms and other attacks, event correlation techniques are needed for two reasons. First, network attack detection is usually based on distributed sensors, e.g. intrusion detection systems. During attacks but even in normal operation, the generated amount of events is hard to handle in order to evaluate the current attack situation for a larger network. Thus, the concept of event or alert correlation has been introduced. This survey was motivated by recent work on early warning systems. We summarize and clarify the typical terminology used in this context and present a requirement analysis from an early warning system's point of view. In the main part of this survey, we summarize and classify event correlation techniques as described in the literature.
