A PhD student doing research in training NNs in dynamic environments. Atm I'm especially interested in dynamically adjusting architectures, as well as everything else that's fresh and cooking.

Thanks for your answer. I asked the question on this forum because I wanted answers from people proficient in security (not in AI). I think I got what I wanted. The rest is up to me :)

You're not being objective, Andrew. Obviously, a NN with 3 inputs and an output is just as likely to "work" as a single neuron is likely to approximate the XOR function. However, the field of NN research is vast and versatile, and - surprise! - it includes a thing called NN ensemble (I am now referring to your idea of interconnecting NNs). I know there is no out-of-the-box solution, for the mere reason that there never is an out-of-the-box solution, whenever the problem to be solved is harder than multiplying 2 by 2. But I am a researcher. I am looking for problems which haven't been solved :)

Awesome! Thanks a lot. I'm just trying to figure out how much of a trodden ground the idea itself is. Apparently, the idea is old, but a stable, universally accepted solution is still pending. Now, taking into account the recent breakthrough in.... Wait, I shouldn't have said that :P

Thanks! I do my humble bit of research in ML, I know its limitations ;) I guess it will be correct to assume the intrusion detection problem hasn't been solved with ML techniques yet. Interesting.

The closest thing I found is this: roberto.perdisci.com/projects/mcpad, but it seems to be an academic project - I can't tell how usable the thing is. Got to try it out. And yet... I like the idea of getting AI involved.
