Traditional intrusion detection and prevention systems have well known limitations that decrease their utility against many kinds of attacks. Creating a new system that collaboratively combines information from traditional and nontraditional sensors to produce new, relevant signatures is one way to deal with these limitations. In this paper, we present a framework that uses this collaborative approach, as well as the details for a network traffic based classifier that shows promise for detecting malicious traffic.
