The problem of making an Intrusion detection system (IDS) attack tolerant is discussed and a system architecture is proposed for this purpose. Avoiding single point of failure is the distributed feature in this design which is a major drawack in a centralized system. The architecture is a hybrid of distributed, redundant to increase fault tolerance and cross-corroborating techniques to boost the surveillance. The Prairie Dog system protects the IDS as well as itself and is flexible and scalable. Integrity Checker (IC), the IDS monitor (IDM) and the Neighborhood watcher (NW) are the three major components of the system. The various attack types and their detection is tabulated to study the efficiency of the system.
