The intrusion detection problem is becoming a challenging task due to the proliferation of heterogeneous computer networks since the increased connectivity of computer systems gives greater access to outsiders and makes it easier for intruders to avoid identification. Intrusion detection systems are used to detect unauthorized access to a computer system. A number of soft computing based approaches are being used for detecting network intrusions. This paper presents a survey on intrusion detection techniques that use genetic algorithm approach.
