System logger, reference monitor, and intrusion detection system

IDS/A is a research project to equip trusted applications with some form of "security awareness." It consists of a combined system logger, reference monitor, and intrusion detection system for applications that lets you monitor and adjust application activity. Features include a powerful logging component and an extensible and modular access control subsystem which can be driven by misuse signatures, anomaly detection modules, or even a human operator.
