In recent years, an increasing focus has been given to the development of security controls to counter current existing mobile security threats; such as Anti-Virus and firewalls, which are both now commercially available. Nevertheless, with the increasing functionality of mobile devices, a need exists for more sophisticated security controls and research is focusing upon other security controls like Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). Indeed, a number of research efforts on IDS for the mobile device have already been given. However, those mobile IDSs are designed to detect particular security threats related to individual service (e.g. telephony). The aim of this paper is to identify the need for a novel mobile IDS which can provide detection for multiple services and support multi-networks simultaneously. This paper begins with investigating the current research on mobile IDS with a view of examining the positive and negative aspects. The paper then processes to describe an experimental study on a behaviour and host based mobile IDS. The paper will conclude with an outline of the research programme and future research for the mobile IDS.
