dc.description.abstractThis thesis addresses the use of a semi-supervised learning (SSL) method in an intrusion detection setting. Specifically, this thesis illustrates the potential benefits and difficulties of using a cluster-then-label (CTL) SSL approach to classify stealth scanning in network flow metadata. A series of controlled tests were performed to show that, in certain situations, a CTL SSL approach could perform comparable to a supervised learner with a fraction of the development effort. This study also balances these findings with pragmatic issues like labeling, noise and feature encoding. While CTL demonstrated accuracy, research is still needed before practical implementations are a reality. The contributions of this work are 1) one of the first studies in the application of SSL in intrusion detection, illustrating the challenges of applying a CTL approach to domain with imbalanced class distributions; 2) the creation of a new intrusion detection dataset; 3) validation of previously established techniquesen_US
