Information technology and especially the Internet are playing an increasing role in our society. Approaches by signature show limits on intrusion detection/attacks by the fact that most web vulnerabilities are specifically for specific applications may be developed in-house by companies. Behavioral methods are therefore an interesting approach in this area. An IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) is a tool that is used to enhance the security level. We present here the secure IPS architecture web

The approach relies on preventive mechanisms: it is then to develop devices capable of preventing any action that would result in a violation of the security policy. However, experience and results show that it is impossible to build a fully secure system for technical or practical reasons.
