Intrusion detection is the process of monitor the event occurring in a computer network and analyzing them for signs of intrusions. In recent years, the needs of internet are felt in lives of many people. Accordingly, many studies have been done on security in virtual environments. The earliest techniques such as authentication, firewalls and encryption could not be utilized toprovide the complete internet security. Similarly, the motivations to create a new solution approach and a defense system in cyber environment led to introduction of numerous intrusion detection systems (IDS); i.e. different algorithms. However, the results have shown that using a machine learning and knowledge discovery techniques are very effective and increase the detection accuracy of anomalies on a real time computer networks. Therefore, this study presents an ensemble of randomizable filtered and K-Nearest Neighbor classifier for selecting features in order to enhance network intrusion detection and increase the accuracy of anomaly detection in a real time computer network. Furthermore, data preprocessing and analysis are undertaken using KDDcup99 dataset and a filter, such that best features are selected and irrelevant, redundant, noisy data are removed. The selected features are passed as input to the based classifier for classification and optimization. The based classifier KNN is employed to increase the amount of learning, the efficiency of classification and thereby increasing the authenticity of intrusion detection. Experimental results obtained reveals that the proposed algorithm is very promising accurately detecting anomalies on a computer network.
