    Announcing the release of NIST Computer Security Publication :
    NIST Inter-agency Report (NISTIR) 7007: An Overview of Issues in Testing
    Intrusion Detection Systems

    While intrusion detection systems are becoming ubiquitous defenses in
    today's networks, currently we have no comprehensive and scientifically
    rigorous methodology to test the effectiveness of these systems. This paper
    explores the types of performance measurements that are desired and that
    have been used in the past. We review many past evaluations that have been
    designed to assess these metrics. We also discuss the hurdles that have
    blocked successful measurements in this area and present suggestions for
    research directed toward improving our measurement capabilities.
