An IP Access Controller is an electronic security device designed to identify users as well as control entry to or exit from protected areas. A typical IP access controller supports two or four basic access control readers. It may have an internal web server and support configuration via a browser or via software installed on a host PC.
The main features that distinguish IP controllers from older generation serial controllers are (i) that IP controllers connect directly to LAN/WAN and have all the inputs and outputs necessary for controlling readers, monitoring door inputs and controlling locks; and (ii) that IP controllers have an on-board network interface and do no require the use of a terminal server.
An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) inspects all inbound and outbound network activity and identifies suspicious patterns that may indicate a network or system attack from someone attempting to break into or compromise a system. Some systems may attempt to stop an intrusion attempt, but this is neither required nor expected of a monitoring system.
Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) are primarily focused on identifying possible incidents, logging information about them and reporting attempts. In addition, organizations use IDPSs for other purposes, such as identifying problems with security policies, documenting existing threats and deterring individuals from violating security policies. IDPSs have become a necessary addition to the security infrastructure of nearly every organization.
Intrusion Detection Systems can also be system-specific, using custom tools such as passive and/or reactive systems, comparison with firewalls, statistical anomaly and signature-based IDSs.
