Today, the world is progressively associated with the Internet so that the attackers and hackers are having a high opportunity to enter PCs and networks. In today’s world hackers are using different types of attacks for receiving valuable information. It is important to recognize these attacks ahead of time to secure end clients and the system effects. Intrusion detection system (IDS) has been generally conveyed in PCs and systems to recognize the variety of attacks. In this paper, the basic observation is on log monitoring in host-based intrusion detection systems. In this paper, host-based intrusion detection is achieved using OSSEC tool. By using the OSSEC, the system is capable of detecting the malicious logs which run in the background from the system.
