Nowadays society, economy, and critical infrastructures have become principally dependent on computers, networks, and information technology solutions, on the other side, cyber-attacks are becoming more sophisticated and thus presenting increasing challenges in accurately detecting intrusions. Failure to prevent intrusions could compromise data integrity, confidentiality, and availability. Different detection methods are proposed to tackle computer security threats, which can be broadly classified into anomaly-based intrusion detection systems (AIDS) and signature-based intrusion detection systems (SIDS). One of the most preferred AIDS mechanisms is the machine learning-based approach which provides the most relevant results ever, but it still suffers from disadvantages like unrepresentative dataset, indeed, most of them were collected during a limited period of time, in some specific networks and mostly don't contain up-to-date data. Additionally, they are imbalanced and do not hold sufficient data for all types of attacks, especially new attack types. For this reason, upto-date datasets such as information security and object technology-cloud intrusion dataset (ISOT-CID) are very convenient to train predictive models on a cloud-based intrusion detection approach. The dataset has been collected over a sufficiently long period and involves several hours of attack data, culminating into a few terabytes. It is large and diverse enough to accommodate machine-learning studies.
