Research Area:  Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
While Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is developed to enable effective vehicle communication and traffic information exchange, VANET is also vulnerable to different security attacks, such as DOS attacks. The usage of an intrusion detection system (IDS) is one possible solution for preventing attacks in VANET. However, dealing with a large amount of vehicular data that keep growing in the urban environment is still an critical challenge for IDSs. This paper, therefore, proposes a new machine learning model to improve the performance of IDSs by using Random Forest and a posterior detection based on coresets to improve the detection accuracy and increase detection efficiency. The experimental results show that the proposed machine learning model can significantly enhance the detection accuracy compared to classical application of machine learning models.
