Abstract:Traditionally, Intrusion Detection Systems generate a large stream of alerts for all the attacks on a network. This thesis presents a Threat Detection System, which generates a list of threats (either human beings or automated computer programs) attacking the network and assigns properties to them such as skill, the intensity of their attacks and whether they are a computer or a human. This al- lows security experts to focus only on the threats that are dangerous and is the basis for a quantitative approach to risk management.
