Abstract

© 2020 IEEE. With the increase of cyber attack risks on critical infrastructures monitored by networked systems, robust Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) for protecting the information have become vital. Designing an IDS that performs with maximum accuracy with minimum false alarms is a challenging task. Ensemble method considered as one of the main developments in machine learning in the past decade, it finds an accurate classifier by combining many classifiers. In this paper, an ensemble classification procedure is proposed using Random Forest (RF), DensityBased Spatial Clustering of Applications with Noise (DBSCAN) and Restricted Boltzmann Machine (RBM) as base classifiers. RF, DBSCAN, and RBM techniques have been used for classification purposes. The ensemble model is introduced for achieving better results. Bayesian Combination Classification (BCC) has been adopted as a combination technique. Independent BCC (IBCC) and Dependent BCC (DBCC) have been tested for performance comparison. The model shows a promising result for all classes of attacks. DBCC performs over IBCC in terms of accuracy and detection rates. Through simulations under a wireless sensor network scenario, we have verified that DBCC-based IDS works with \approx 100\% detection and \approx 1.0 accuracy rate in the existence of intrusive behavior in the tested Wireless Sensor Network (WSN).
