As the wireless network environment has been developed rapidly and significantly, the number of cyber threats onwireless infrastructure have been increasing. Wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) is getting more attention as a technology to perceive and block the wireless infrastructure security threat. Currently, WIPS technology evolves into the integrated management system that allows the collect, storage and management of all detected security events by sensors in a single system. However, the technology converges and manages heterogeneous WIPS does not exist. Therefore, there are the limitations that heterogeneous WIPS sensors and administration managers are not compatible. In this paper, propose and design the data normalization method for the integrated management of the heterogeneous WIPS. For normalization of the data, we analyzed the existing the 3 WIPS technology. To the implementation of the proposed method, based on the analysis results and system requirements, and has developed a standard protocol between heterogeneous WIPS using the JSON format. The experimental result of the proposed technology clearly presents that the function is extended and flexible compared with the traditional singleWIPS administration system. Additionally to resolve a wired network load that can be generated by the proposed system, we applied the information compression method to the system. Conclusively we improved the system performance about 7 times compared with traditional WIPS management systems.
