Abstract

In recent years, the development of Web-based applications has made possible novel online activities, such as banking and electronic shopping. This implies significant use of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) as the standard communication protocol enabler for Web services. Due to this role, HTTP has become an essential middle target of bound attacks for intruders. This paper is set to address various problems in anomaly-based intrusion detection for HTTP Web services. We seek to identify common essential methods and solutions, as well as the gaps, limitations and challenges in anomaly intrusion detection in terms of used experimental datasets, features and techniques.
