An execlent paper indeed. I've been thinking about this concept for a while
now. My initial thoughts was a simple perl-based system that would correlate
enteries from Snort with a saved, recent copy of a nessus scan to provide
more intelligent aleting according to what ports and services are

Despite how you do it, I think that the Asset DB alone would increase IDS
effectiveness ten-fold. The current issues I see around here don't have to
do with tuning rulesets to whats on the network, it has to do with the fack
that idiot contractor #10 brought his system in and it has X services
running that weren't on my network 24 hours ago.

I recently finished a paper on the Threat Management space and would
like to share my findings will others.  We are currently in the process
of evaluating solutions in this space.  While its not 100 percent
complete it will provide an understanding of the concept.  As I progress
with the project I will continue to expand the paper.
