The ORCHIDS real-time intrusion detection system was created in 2003-04 at SECSI. After a few years where research and development around ORCHIDS was relatively quiet, several new things happened, starting from the end of 2010.

First, several companies and institutions expressed interest in ORCHIDS, among which, notably, EADS Cassidian, Thalès, Galois Inc. (USA), the French Direction Générale de l'Armement (DGA).

Second, Baptiste Gourdin was hired as a development engineer (Dec. 2010-Nov. 2011) on an Action de Développement Technologique (ADT). He improved Orchids in several ways.

Nasr-Eddine Yousfi followed up on Baptiste Gourdin, starting from December 2011, on an ITI engineer position allotted by Inria's CSATT. He mostly explored ways of writing security meta-policies for confidentiality of sensitive dat.

Orchids will be the core of a contract between Inria and DGA, to be signed in December 2012, for three years.
