Abstract

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) enables flexibility in developing security tools that can effectively and efficiently analyze and detect malicious network traffic for detecting intrusions. Recently Machine Learning (ML) techniques have attracted lots of attention from researchers and industry for developing intrusion detection systems (IDSs) considering logically centralized control and global view of the network provided by SDN. Many IDSs have developed using advances in machine learning and deep learning. This study presents a comprehensive review of recent work of ML-based IDS in context to SDN. It presents a comprehensive study of the existing review papers in the field. It is followed by introducing intrusion detection, ML techniques and their types. Specifically, we present a systematic study of recent works, discuss ongoing research challenges for effective implementation of ML-based intrusion detection in SDN, and promising future works in this field.
