Various tools, methods and techniques have been developed in recent years to deal with intrusion detection and ensure network security. However, despite all these efforts, gaps remain, apparently due to insufficient data sources on attacks on which to train and test intrusion detection algorithms. We propose a data-flow adaptive method for intrusion detection based on searching through high-dimensional dataset for naturally arising structures. The algorithm is trained on a subset of 82332 observations on 25 numeric variables and one cyber-attack label and tested on another large subset of similar structure. Its novelty derives from iterative estimation of cluster centroids, variability and proportions based on repeated sampling. Data visualisation and numerical results provide a clear separation of a set of variables associated with two types of attacks. We highlight the algorithm’s potential extensions – its allurement to predictive modelling and adaptation to other dimensional-reduction techniques.
