Intrusion detection with unlabeled data using clustering
Intrusions pose a serious security threat in a network environment, and therefore need to be promptly detected and dealt with. New intrusion types, of which detection systems may not even be aware, are the most difficult to detect. Current signature based methods and learning algorithms which rely on labeled data to train, generally can not detect these new intrusions. We present a framework for automatically detecting intrusions, new or otherwise, even if they are yet unknown to the system. In our system, no manually or otherwise classified data is necessary for training. Our method is able to detect many different types of intrusions, while maintaining a low false positive rate.
