The IDS alerted you there was an attack when there was none.
What is called?
- True negative
- False positive
- False negative
- True positive
A false positive means the IDS mistakenly (False) identified an attack (positive). A true positive means the IDS correctly (True) detected an issue positive). A false negative means the system made a mistake (False) and missed (negative) an issue. A true negative means the IDS correctly (True) did not detect an issue (negative).
