Currently, signature based Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) approaches are inadequate to address threats posed to networked systems by zero-day exploits. Statistical machine learning techniques offer a great opportunity to mitigate these threats. However, at this point, statistical based IDS systems are not mature enough to be implemented in realtime systems and the techniques to be used are not sufficiently understood. This study focuses on a recently expanded corpus for IDS analysis. Feature analysis and Support Vector Machines classification are performed to obtain a better understanding of the corpus and to establish a baseline set of results which can be used by other studies for comparison. Results of the classification and feature analysis are discussed.
