We present an architecture designed for alert verification (i.e., to reduce false positives) in network
intrusion-detection systems. Our technique is based on a systematic (and automatic) anomaly-based
analysis of the system output, which provides useful context information regarding the network
services. The false positives raised by the NIDS analyzing the incoming traffic (which can be either
signature- or anomaly-based) are reduced by correlating them with the output anomalies. We designed
our architecture for TCP-based network services which have a client/server architecture (such as
HTTP). Benchmarks show a substantial reduction of false positives between 50% and 100%.
