We present a distributed elastic intrusion detection architecture called DEIDtect. DEIDtect exploits the increasing deployment of cloud computing and software defined networking technology in enterprise and campus environments to deal with current inflexibilities associated with compute and network resources required by security tools. We present the detailed design and implementation of DEIDtect’s networking functionality and illustrate its functionality in an emulated environment.
