Abstract

Web attacks are a major security concern as novel attacks can be easily created by targeting dierent vulnerabilities, using dierent vulnerability exploits, attack payloads, and/or request encodings (obfuscation). Intrusion detection systems (IDS) aim to correctly detect attacks. There are two main approaches to intrusion detection: misuse and anomaly detection. Despite the dierence in approach, they both fail to oer adequate resilience to novel attacks due to the diculty in generalizing beyond known attack or normal behavior [1].
