Abstract: In the new generation of the Network Intrusion Detection system (NIDS), due to the increase packet data that need to be inspected simultaneously, this creates the need of an advanced pattern-matching engine. In this project, in order to shorten the inspection time and reduce the workload for the inspecting system hardware, we investigated an efficient algorithm for multi-string matching, which is called the AC algorithm. It supports high data rate, dynamic update and it is one of the most storage-efficient schemes currently exists. This project will also include the simulation with 4300 patterns extracted from Snort, a worldwide NIDS, and the comparison with Jan van Lunteren’s new scheme for pattern-matching which is called the BFSM-based pattern-matching (BFPM) scheme. This may be the best pattern-matching algorithm nowadays.
