Defence against adversarial attacks on IoT detection systems using deep belief network

Sharipuddin Sharipuddin, Eko Arip Winanto


An Adversarial attack is a technique used to deceive machine learning models to make incorrect predictions by providing slightly modified inputs from the original. Intrusion detection system (IDS) is a crucial tool in computer network security for the detection of adversarial attacks. Deep learning is a trending method in both research and industry, and this study proposes the use of a deep belief network (DBN). DBN can recognize data with small differences, but is also vulnerable to adversarial attacks. Therefore, this research suggests an internet of things-intrusion detection system (IoT-IDS) architecture using a DBN that can counter adversarial attacks. The chosen adversarial attack for this study is the fast gradient sign method (FGSM) used to evaluate the IoT IDS using the DBN model. Testing was conducted in two scenarios: first, the model was trained without adversarial attacks; second, the model was trained with adversarial attacks. The test results indicate that the DBN model struggles to detect FGSM attacks, achieving an accuracy of only 46% when it is not trained with adversarial attacks. However, after training with the FGSM dataset, the DBN model successfully detected adversarial attacks with an accuracy of 97%.
