Abstract: The advancement in cyber-attack technologies have ushered in various new attacks which are difficult to detect using traditional intrusion detection systems (IDS).Existing IDS are trained to detect known patterns because of which newer attacks bypass the current IDS and go undetected. In this paper, a two level framework is proposed which can be used to detect unknown new attacks using machine learning techniques. In the first level the known types of classes for attacks are determined using supervised machine learning algorithms such as Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Neural networks (NN). The second level uses unsupervised machine learning algorithms such as K-means. The experimentation is carried out with four models with NSL- KDD dataset in Openstack cloud environment. The Model with Support Vector Machine for supervised machine learning, Gradual Feature Reduction (GFR) for feature selection and K-means for unsupervised algorithm provided the optimum efficiency of 94.56 %.
