Definitions

Network anomaly detection refers to the problem of finding anomalous patterns in network activities and behaviors, which deviate from normal network operational patterns. More specifically, in network anomaly detection context, a set of network actions, behaviors, or observations is pronounced anomalous when it does not conform by some measures to a model of profiled network behaviors, which is mostly based on modelling benign network traffic.

Overview

In today’s world, networks are growing fast and becoming more and more diverse, not only connecting people but also things. They account for a large proportion of the processing power, due to the trend of moving more and more of the computing and the data to the cloud systems. There might also come the time when the vast majority of things are controlled in a coordinated way over the network. This phenomenon not only opens...
