Actaully check the archives for 'anomally detection' to get some other
ideas about ways to do this.

Basically, once you have a "known" network, it doesn't take much to get a
set of rules when you see "something that shouldn't be happening".  A nice
benefit of this is that once this is setup, any changes that are made to
the network (rouge server) become pretty obvious.
