Network security is a very important aspect for internet enabled systems. As the internet keeps developing the number of security attacks as well as their severity has shown a significant increase. The Intrusion Detection System (IDS) plays a very important role in discovering anomalies and attacks in the network. The aim of an intrusion detection system is to identify those entities that attempt to destabilize security controls that have been put in place. The field of machine learning is rapidly gaining more attention in the development of these intrusion detection systems.
