Using Information Theory in Pattern Recognition for Intrusion Detection
There are so many methods of pattern recognition for a dataset, but some datasets are special! KDDCUP 99 dataset have some properties that can help one to do a better pattern recognition. For example there are many unused future that can be omitted in some manner, moreover when the authors want to do pattern recognition for a particular goal such as finding attacks they can find the relevant futures for any attack by information theory and just use these futures to detect attacks. They do pattern recognition for any attack by a simple way and after all they combine these results to deduce the final result.
