Thesis Abstract : Nowadays, cyber attacks are beginning to occur at an increasing rate. Along with this, diversity, size and density of the cyber attacks are increasing accordingly. When we analyze log in the security devices, we find that the massive amount of attacks sign was created. Besides, It is also difficult for human to evaluate the log accurately. Therefore, the identification of key data, which can be used to distinguish attack from this very large data set, is important for both rapid detection of attack and rapid response of security devices. In this study, we will focus on selection of appropriate data from the log via machine learning and determine the distinctive attributes specific to the attack in the selection of these data. Thus, we will research on the classification of the data to be used in the attack detection via machine learning.
