Abstract

Wireless networks have become integral to modern communication systems, making them vulnerable to various security threats. Intrusion detection systems (IDSs) are essential for detecting and mitigating these threats and can also powerfully screen network traffic for pernicious activities that are planned to abuse the classification, honesty, realness, and accessibility of the network. Machine learning (ML) and Deep learning (DL) techniques are effective in identifying and classifying network attacks. This study proposes a novel intrusion detection system that employs ML and DL models to classify and distinguish network attacks in wireless networks. The proposed system enhanced detection accuracy and efficiency in IDS, the scalability of IDS systems, and estimated the performance of IDS in wireless networks. It also investigates IDS techniques using machine learning, designs and implements IDS in wireless networks using machine learning, and trains several IDS models regarding wireless networks that are fitted. It contrasts the exhibition of proposed models and existing procedures. The suggested system can therefore be utilized as an effective IDS for wireless networks, providing real-time detection and classification of network attacks.
