Subject: IDS for Windows

I think one can still find portmon, and perhaps a few others, did you try
a google search prior to asking here??  That's a prime place to start,
then perhaps rephrase here asking for experiences others have had with a
few products you find and are interested in/fits your needs/abilities?

One thing about a number <most?> IDS ir portmonitoring software, they tend
to show the ports they monitor for activity/action as being "open", this
will attract a tad more attention to the systems they are placed upon,
much as a honeypot will.  Better to lock down exposed systems in most
cases with a firewall that actually drops or denies all connetion/probe
attempts to unwanted exposures.  Firewalling remains the most effective
primary besides just uninstalling or not installing in the first place,
services un-needed and/or not-understood.

IDS systems tend to take alot of care and feeding to make real use of them
in an unwastfule manner, and they are best placed behind a firewall as one
more additional warning layer should the firewall incorrectly fail-open,
or die, or not start, or somehow miss something your security policy
dictates.  Palcing a IDS at the frontgate tends to make them so noisy that
they are soon ignored anyways...

OK, so you're a Ph.D.  Just don't touch anything.
