Due to the advantages of easy re-configurability and scalability, the memory-based string matching architecture is widely adopted by network intrusion detection systems (NIDS). In order to accommodate the increasing number of attack patterns and meet the throughput requirement of networks, a successful NIDS system must have a memory-efficient pattern-matching algorithm and hardware design. In this paper, we propose a memory-efficient pattern-matching algorithm which can significantly reduce the… CONTINUE READING
