Ever increasing demand for good quality communication relies heavily on Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS). Intrusion detection for network security demands high performance. This paper describes of the available approaches for a network intrusion detection system in both software and hardware implementation. This paper describes of the structure of Snort rule set which is a very popular software signature and anomaly-based Intrusion Detection and prevention system. This paper also discusses the merit of FPGA devices to be used in network intrusion detection system implementation and the approaches used in hardware implementation of NIDS.
