Abstract [en]

Intrusion prevention systems are a widely used today to protect the local network from threats on the world wide web by blocking unwanted packets, but still be able to forward desirable traffic. Before placing the intrusion prevention system in a live network, the system can be tested with it capabilities in a test environment.

This paper is about the build of the toolbox "Cactuz", developed with 11 different test sce-narios with the availability to expand. The report contains general information about threats and attacks but also the software and tools included in the build. The result of the build is presented as the toolbox which includes multiple attacks and tests with a user interface. Cac-tuz is evaluated by Snort IPS where the evaluation of each attack is presented and analyzed.
