Abstract: This paper investigates the performance of a Fast k-Nearest Neighbor Classifier (FkNN) for Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) on Cloud Environment. For this study Variance Index based Partial Distance Search (VIPDS) kNN [7] is adopted as an FkNN classifier. A benchmark dataset CICIDS2017[16] is considered for the evaluation process because it is a 78 featured dataset with most updated cloud related attacks. To achieve this objective a frame work is proposed for implementing FkNN and compared with kNN classifier by considering two performance measures Accuracy and computational time. This study explores the gain in the computational time without compromising the Accuracy while using FkNN instead of kNN over a large featured dataset. The conclusions are drawn as per the results obtained from the experiments conducted on CICIDS2017 dataset.
Keywords: Fast kNN Classifier, Network Intrusion Detection System, Variance Indexing, and Cloud.
Scope of the Article: Middleware for service based systems.
