ENSEMBLE MACHINE LEARNING APPROACH FOR IOT INTRUSION DETECTION SYSTEMS
Keywords:intrusion detection system, Machine Learning, IoT, Ensemble
The rapid growth and development of the Internet of Things (IoT) have had an important impact on various industries, including smart cities, the medical profession, autos, and logistics tracking. However, with the benefits of the IoT come security concerns that are becoming increasingly prevalent. This issue is being addressed by developing intelligent network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) using machine learning (ML) techniques to detect constantly changing network threats and patterns. Ensemble ML represents the recent direction in the ML field. This research proposes a new anomaly-based solution for IoT networks utilizing ensemble ML algorithms, including logistic regression, naive Bayes, decision trees, extra trees, random forests, and gradient boosting. The algorithms were tested on three different intrusion detection datasets. The ensemble ML method achieved an accuracy of 98.52% when applied to the UNSW-NB15 dataset, 88.41% on the IoTID20 dataset, and 91.03% on the BoTNeTIoT-L01-v2 dataset.
