    My name is Muhammad Ali Rajput,
    Its good to hear that you want to study IPS. One thing you can do visit; here you can find information to get started.
    IPS is quite new concept but nothing is impossible, maybe your 20 mintue idea

    Presently i am working on a host-based IDS (for Windows 2000 pro) to submit as
    a degree project.
    You can mail me back if you need any information regarding this.
