In this research, we focus on investigating the effectiveness of different adversarial attacks and robustness of deep learning-based Intrusion detection using different Neural networks, e.g., Artificial Neural Network, convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks. We utilize the min-max approach to formulate the problem of training robustness intrusion detection against adversarial samples using UNSW-NB15 and NSD-KDD. We structure an optimization framework by applying the max approach to generate persuasive adversarial samples that maximum loss. On the other side, we minimize the loss of the incorporated adversarial samples during the training time. With our experiments on multiple deep neural networks algorithms and two benchmark datasets, we demonstrate that defense using adversarial training based min-max approach increases the robustness of the network under the assumption of our threat model and five state-of-the-art adversarial attacks.
