Problem statement: The problem of the computer attack system has recently been much studied to improve the evaluation process of the Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS). Approach: This study aimed at presenting the principal attacks classifications; especially, the study of classification towards the evaluation for which we suggested some improvements that may allow the generation of a test cases selection about attacks by using the classification tree method. Results: The results proposed evaluators to select relevant attack test cases by using the Classification Tree Method (CTM). Conclusion: By using the Classification Tree Method (CTM), to the new classification as it was obtained and by applying the CTE tool, we were able to generate some significant and reduced cases test compared to the classification toward the assessment which was studied by Gadelrab.
