Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are network security tools that process local audit data or monitor network traffic to search for specific patterns or certain deviations from expected behavior. We use a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm which is hybridized with an Artificial Immune System as a method of anomaly-based IDS because of the similarity between the intrusion detection system architecture and the biological immune systems. In this study, we tested the improvements we made to jREMISA, a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm inspired artificial immune system, on the DARPA 1999 dataset and compared our results with others in literature. The almost 100% true positive rate and 0% false positive rate of our approach, under the given parameter settings and experimental conditions, shows that the improvements are successful as an anomaly-based IDS when compared with related studies.
