Artificial Intelligence plays a significant role in building effective cybersecurity tools. Security has a crucial role in the modern digital world and has become an essential area of research. Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) are among the first security systems that encounter network attacks and facilitate attack detection to protect a network. Contemporary machine learning approaches, like novel neural network architectures, are succeeding in network intrusion detection. This paper tests modern machine learning approaches on a novel cybersecurity benchmark IoT dataset. Among other algorithms, Deep AutoEncoder (DAE) and modified Long Short Term Memory (mLSTM) are employed to detect network anomalies in the IoT-23 dataset. The DAE is employed for dimensionality reduction and a host of ML methods, including Deep Neural Networks and Long Short-Term Memory to classify the outputs of into normal/malicious. The applied method is validated on the IoT-23 dataset. Furthermore, the results of the analysis in terms of evaluation matrices are discussed.
