Anomaly Detection using Optimized Features using Genetic Algorithm and MultiEnsemble Classifier
Anomaly detection system plays an important role in network security. Anomaly detection or intrusion detection model is a predictive model used to predict the network data traffic as normal or intrusion. Machine Learning algorithms are used to build accurate models for clustering, classification and prediction. In this paper classification and predictive models for intrusion detection are built by using machine learning classification algorithms namely Random Forest. These algorithms are tested with KDD-99 data set. In this research work the model for anomaly detection is based on normalized reduced feature and multilevel ensemble classifier. The work is performed in divided into two stages. In the first stage data is normalized using mean normalization. In second stage genetic algorithm is used to reduce number of features and further multilevel ensemble classifier is used for classification of data into different attack groups. From result analysis it is analysed that with reduced feature intrusion can be classified more efficiently.
