Threats to Adversarial Training for IDSs and Mitigation


Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are essential tools to protect network security from malicious traffic. IDS have recently made significant advancements in their detection capabilities through deep learning algorithms compared to conventional approaches. However, these algorithms are susceptible to new types of adversarial evasion attacks. Deep learning-based IDS, in particular, are vulnerable to adversarial attacks based on Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN). First, this paper identifies the main threats to the robustness of IDS against adversarial sample attacks that aim at evading IDS detection by focusing on potential weaknesses in the structure and content of the dataset rather than on its representativeness. In addition, we propose an approach to improve the performance of adversarial training by driving it to focus on the best evasion candidates samples in the dataset. We find that GAN adversarial attack evasion capabilities are significantly reduced when our method is used to strengthen the IDS.
