Intrusion detection plays a critical role in cyber-security domain since malicious attacks cause irreparable damages to cyber-systems. In this work, we propose the I2SP prototype, which is a novel Information Sharing Platform, able to gather, pre-process, model, and distribute network-traffic information. Within the I2SP prototype we build several challenging deep feature learning models for network-traffic intrusion detection. The learnt representations will be utilized for classifying each new network measurement into its corresponding threat level. We evaluate our prototype’s performance by conducting case studies using cyber-security data extracted from the Malware Information Sharing Platform (MISP)-API. To the best of our knowledge, we are the first that combine the MISP-API in order to construct an information sharing mechanism that supports multiple novel deep feature learning architectures for intrusion detection. Experimental results justify that the proposed deep feature learning techniques are able to predict accurately MISP threat-levels.
