Electronic commerce will ultimately enable consumers to perform all of their own banking, investing and purchasing from home or work. The vast growth potential for electronic commerce is tempered by legitimate concerns over the security of such a system. A failure to secure the networking environment of e-commerce may result in great disasters to the e-commerce merchants. Parallel to the e-commerce trends that is keeping up, the hackers and crackers skill is improving tremendously. Unfortunately most current e-commerce merchants pretend to be satisfied with the existing firewall as a sole security solution which is definitely not enough to secure the e-commerce networking environment. This research is looking into the current Network Security Models which implements firewall as a sole security component as part of their security strategy. It is proven by literature review that firewall implementation does impose several weaknesses. Intrusion Detection Systems is said to have a great potential as a component that will be able to address firewall weaknesses and thus enhancing the security level of e-commerce networking environment. Several tests have been done to verify Intrusion Detection System's capabilities in assisting firewall. The result out of this research is a proposed network security model, which collaborates two security solutions that is firewall and Intrusion Detection System in an effort to increase the security level of e-commerce networking environment.
