A framework for developing intrusion detection systems based on the State Transistion Analysis Technique

The STAT project provides a framework that supports the development and the control of scenario-based sensors. By using STAT, it is possible to create a set of sensors that will operate in different domains and environments, e.g., network-based sensors, host-based sensors, and application-based sensors. In addition, STAT provides an infrastructure to communicate securely with the deployed sensors so that it is possible to collect the results of scenario-based analysis and control sensors' configuration from a central location. Centralized management systems can be composed hierarchically to achieve scalability and extended control over large sets of sensors
