There are many security models for computer networks using a combination of Intrusion Detection System and Firewall proposed and deployed in practice. In this paper, we propose and implement a new model of the association between Intrusion Detection System and Firewall operations, which allows Intrusion Detection System to automatically update the firewall filtering rule table whenever it detects a weirdo intrusion. This helps protect the network from attacks from the Internet.
