Abstract
DURING THE TESTS OF SOME INTRUSION DETECTION SYSTEMS (IDS), VARIOUS SPURIOUS ALARMS HAVE BEEN PRODUCED, THE ORIGINS OF WHICH ARE NOT KNOWN. THESE INTERFERING SIGNALS ARE CLASSIFIED AS EITHER NUISANCE ALARMS OR FALSE ALARMS. THIS PROPOSED PHASE I INVESTIGATION WILL OBTAIN DATA ABOUT THE PERSONNEL TRAINING AND SKILLS, IDA HARDWARE SPECIFICATIONS, AND THE ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES THAT MAY AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE IDS. A SYNTHESIS OF THESE DATA, TAKEN TOGETHER WITH INFORMATION ABOUT ACOUSTIC SIGNATURES OF ITRUDERS, WILL ENABLE FORMULATION OF A THEORY ABOUT THE MOST LIKELY SOURES OF THE UNWANTED SIGNALS. THE FINAL REPORT OF THIS PHASE I EFFORT WILL CONTAIN RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE FIELD TESTS IN ACTUAL SOURCES OF THE FALSE ALARMS. PHASE II WOULD ALSO INCLUDE PRACTICAL TRIALS OF METHODS THAT WOULD REDUCE OR ELIMINATE FALSE ALARMS.
