An Improved Genetic Algorithm and Its Blending Application with Neural Network

In order to overcome the limitation such as premature convergence and low global convergence speed of standard genetic algorithm, an improved genetic algorithm named adaptive genetic algorithm simulating human reproduction mode is proposed. The genetic operators of this algorithm include selection operator, help operator, adaptive crossover operator and adaptive mutation operator. The genetic individuals' sex feature, age feature and consanguinity feature are considered. Two individuals with opposite sex can reproduce the next generation if they are distant consanguinity individuals and their age is allowable. Based on this improved genetic algorithm, a thoroughly evolutionary neural network algorithm named IGA-BP algorithm is proposed. In IGA-BP algorithm, genetic algorithm is used firstly to evolve and design the structure, the initial weights and thresholds, the training ratio and momentum factor of neural network roundly. Then, training samples are used to search for the optimal solution by the evolutionary neural network. IGA-BP algorithm was used in pattern recognition example of Gray code. The illustrational results showed that IGA-BP algorithm was better than traditional neural network algorithm in both speed and precision of convergence, and its validity was proved.

Application of PSO-RBF Neural Network in Network Intrusion Detection

Detecting all kinds of intrusions efficiently is significant to network security. Radial basis function (RBF) neural network is a kind of feed forward neural network, which is widely employed as a real-time pattern classification. In RBF neural network, the center of radial basis function, the variance of radial basis of function and the weight have to be chosen. If they are not appropriately chosen, the RBF neural network may degrade validity and accuracy of modeling. Particle swarm optimization algorithm (PSO) is a member of the wide category of swarm intelligence methods to solve non-linear programming problems. PSO has proved to be competitive with genetic algorithm (GA) in parameter optimization. So PSO is used to optimize the RBF neural network parameters in this work. Therefore, the novel combination method based on RBF neural network and PSO (PSO-RBFNN) is adapted to network intrusion detection. The experimental results show that the proposed model is superior to the conventional RBF neural network.

A Quantification Method for Network Security Situational Awareness Based on Conditional Random Fields
Network security situational awareness(NSSA) has been a hot research spot in the network security domain. In this paper, a quantification method for NSSA based on conditional random fields(CRFs) was proposed. The data of network attacks from intrusion detection system (IDS), the hosts' vulnerabilities and the hosts' states were firstly combined as the network security factors. And then the network security threat degree was defined to quantify the risk of the whole network and classify the attacks. A diverse set of effective features were incorporated in CRFs Model. Finally the experiments on the DARPA 2000 data set generate the explicit network security situational graph. It proves that the method introduced in this paper can represent network risk more accurate and offer a good quantification for the network security situation.
