In order to improve the detection rate and speed of intrusion detection system, this paper proposes a feature selection algorithm. The algorithm uses information gain to rank the features in descending order, and then uses a multi-objective genetic algorithm to gradually search the ranking features to find the optimal feature combination. We classified the Kddcup98 dataset into five classes, DOS, PROBE, R2L, and U2R, and conducted numerous experiments on each class. Experimental results show that for each class of attack, the proposed algorithm can not only speed up the feature selection, but also significantly improve the detection rate of the algorithm.
