Project description

The student will perform a background study on how DDoS attacks work, and will work with a real world dataset to perform data analysis and develop a detection technique.

Analysis and Implementation of Machine Learning Approaches to DDoS Attack Detection
Project outcome

The CICDDoS2019 dataset was used in the research. 3 detection techniques were trained and tested using Decision Tree, Random Forest, and SVM (Linear kernel) models. Their effectiveness was evaluated and compared.
