Alert aggregation classified as a similarity-based alert correlation which fuses and clusters similar alerts. Alert aggregation increases meaning of alerts and reduces incoming alerts simultaneously; this process requires lots of computing resources. Limitation of computing resources, like CPUs, makes such systems not satisfactory. Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) are a potential option to solve this. In recent years, GPUs have been used in various fields, however, due to the dynamic nature of processing and data structures in alert correlation, correlation algorithms have not been implemented on GPU.
