Towards an Efficient Anomaly-Based Intrusion Detection for Software-Defined Networks

by   Majd Latah, et al.

Software-defined networking (SDN) is a new paradigm that allows developing more flexible network applications. SDN controller, which represents a centralized controlling point, is responsible for running various network applications as well as maintaining different network services and functionalities. Choosing an efficient intrusion detection system helps in reducing the overhead of the running controller and creates a more secure network. In this study, we investigate the performance of well-known anomaly-based intrusion detection approaches in terms of accuracy, false positive rate, area under ROC curve and execution time. Precisely, we focus on supervised machine-learning approaches where we use the following classifiers: Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS), Decision Trees (DT), Extreme Learning Machine (ELM), Naive Bayes (NB), Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), Neural Networks (NN), Support Vector Machines (SVM), Random Forest (RT) and K Nearest-Neighbor (KNN). By using the NSL-KDD benchmark dataset, we observe that KNN achieves the best testing accuracy. However, in terms of execution time, we conclude that ELM shows the best results for both training and testing stages.
