Machine learning techniques have been extensively adopted in the domain of Network-based Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) especially in the task of network traffics classification. A decision tree model with its kinship terminology is very suitable in this application. The merit of its straightforward and simple “if-else” rules makes the interpretation of network traffics easier. Despite its powerful classification and interpretation capacities, the visibility of its tree rules is introducing a new privacy risk to NIDS where it reveals the network posture of the owner. In this paper, we propose a sensitive pruning-based decision tree to tackle the privacy issues in this domain. The proposed pruning algorithm is modified based on C4.8 decision tree (better known as J48 in Weka package). The proposed model is tested with the 6 percent GureKDDCup NIDS dataset.
