Joel, I'm thinking it could be SANS.  I have talked with a number of SANS
people a while back and they always tout IDS as a good research topic for
their "gold" certification (or whatever it is called where you have to
write a research paper, similar to graduate school but not accredited or a
real school thesis).  One of my engineers went to a SANS class a few years
ago and came back all fired up about writing a paper on "iDS - Intrusion
Detection for Mac Users" but I don't remember the details.  That got shut
down pretty quick.  We don't allow Macs in our environment and they aren't
really a target anyway like MS Windows is so we couldn't justify giving him
the time to do it since we wouldn't reap any benefits from it.
