This paper explores the role of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) in the context of High-Frequency Trading (HFT). Given the rapid, automated nature of HFT, it’s crucial to have robust security measures to promptly detect and address any malicious activities. IDS presents a compelling solution by monitoring network traffic and detecting any suspicious activities based on predefined rules. By considering various types of IDS and their appropriateness for HFT environments, this paper discusses effective implementation strategies and the impact of these systems on HFT operations. We demonstrate through this discussion that while incorporating IDS within HFT may present specific challenges, it is a crucial component for the secure and efficient functioning of HFT platforms.
