Abstract:We present a new approach to anomaly-based network intrusion detection for web applications. This approach is based on dividing the input parameters of the monitored web application in two groups: the “regular” and the “irregular” ones, and applying a new method for anomaly detection on the “regular” ones based on the inference of a regular language. We support our proposal by realizing Sphinx, an anomaly-based intrusion detection system based on it. Thorough benchmarks show that Sphinx performs better than current state-of-the-art systems, both in terms of false positives/false negatives as well as needing a shorter training period.
