Abstract

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a transformative technology for potential replacement of human tasks and activities within industrial, social, intellectual, and digital applications. Network intrusion detection is crucial to identify cyber-attacks in critical infrastructures where a dynamic collection and analysis of network traffic can be conducted using AI. In this research paper we develop a novel intrusion detection architecture to mitigate malicious traffic passing through cyber infrastructure of an organization. We propose to design scenarios based on AI for intelligent self-protection or alert system that will facilitate countering actual cyber-attacks. The system will utilize machine learning algorithm - Random Forest - to offer more flexibility to discover new attacks and to ensure training the system to predict them in the future. Moreover, we design spam filtering program on python to detect spam emails as per email is one of the main attacking vectors that threatens the security of critical infrastructures.
