Can anyone help me simulate a malicious activity?

Its my first time to implement an IDS and I want to prove that it really detects and stops malicious activities/signatures. How can I simulate an attack so that the IDS will report an alarm? thanks

The easiest way to do this would be to download an exploit, compile it, then run it against a machine while the IDS can see the traffic.

If this isn't possible, you could use whisker. It is an http scanning utility written by RFP (Rain Forest Puppy) and it triggers some IDS alarms.

A problem called stick. It compiles on linux and throws several loud attackes past (or at) your IDS.

Paper on stick available @ http://xforce.iss.net

Download it http://www.eurocompton.net/stick (code By Coretez Giovanni)

good luck,
