Abstract

Detection accuracy of Intrusion Detection System (IDS) depends on classifying network traffic based on data features. Using all features for classification consumes more computation time and computer resources. Some of these features may be redundant and irrelevant therefore, they affect the detection of traffic anomalies and the overall performance of the IDS. The literature proposed different algorithms and techniques to define the most relevant sets of features of KDD cup 1999 that can achieve high detection accuracy and maintain the same performance as the total data features. However, all these algorithms and techniques did not produce optimal solutions even when they utilized same datasets. In this paper, a new approach is proposed to analyze the researches that have been conducted on KDD cup 1999 for features selection to define the possibility of determining effective generic features of the common dataset KDD cup 1999 for constructing an efficient classification model. The approach does not rely on algorithms, which shortens the computational cost and reduces the computer resources. The essence of the approach is based on selecting the most frequent features of each class and all classes in all researches, then a threshold is used to define the most significant generic features. The results revealed two sets of features containing 7 and 8 features. The classification accuracy by using eight features is almost the same as using all dataset features.
