The necessity for reliable and rapid intrusion detection systems to identify distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks using IoT botnets has become more evident as the IoT environment expands. Many network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) built on deep learning algorithms that provide accurate detection have been designed to address this demand. However, since most of the developed NIDSs depend on network traffic flow features rather than incoming packet features, they may be incapable of providing an online solution. On the other hand, online and real-time systems either do not utilize the temporal characteristics of network traffic at all, or employ recurrent deep learning models (RNN, LSTM, etc.) to remember time-based characteristics of the traffic in the short-term. This thesis presents a network intrusion detection system built on the CNN algorithm that can work online and makes use of both the spatial and temporal characteristics of the network data. By adding two memories to the system, with one of them, the system can keep track of the characteristics of previous traffic data for a longer period, and with the second memory, by keeping the previously classified traffic flow information, it can avoid examining all of the packets with the time-consuming deep learning model, reducing intrusion detection time. It has been seen that the suggested system is capable of detecting malicious traffic coming from IoT botnets in a timely and accurate manner.
