Now security is considered as a major issue in networks, since the network has extended dramatically. Therefore, intrusion detection systems have attracted attention, as it has an ability to detect intrusion accesses effectively. These systems identify attacks and react by generating alerts or by blocking the unwanted data/traffic. The proposed system includes fuzzy logic with a data mining method which is a class-association rule mining method based on genetic algorithm. Due to the use of fuzzy logic, the proposed system can deal with mixed type of attributes and also avoid the sharp boundary problem. Genetic algorithm is used to extract many rules which are required for anomaly detection systems.
