In this paper, the authors proposed the design of an Intrusion Detection
System (IDS) that can be used in the healthcare sector to increase cybersecurity. This
sector is facing high cyber threats. Similar IDS systems will be reviewed in the
following pages, followed by the justifications of why the authors decided to design the
IDS to be Signature-based. The experimental results showed that the developed IDS
could successfully capture the network traffic, record the logs and show an informative
alarm screen with a few other options within the dashboard to assist the user in
handling the situation and assure the hospital network security.
