© 2021 ACM. Intrusion detection remains one of the critical research issues in network security. Many machine learning algorithms have been proposed to develop intrusion detection systems, which can categorize network traffic into normal and anomalous classes. The multilayer extreme learning machine (ML-ELM) and the deep neural network (DNN) are two machine learning algorithms based on different theories/concepts that use the same multilayer architecture. In this paper, a comparative study is performed to shed light on the selection between these two algorithms with the same architecture in intrusion detection applications. The study explores the performance of the ML-ELM and DNN algorithms under similar parameter settings. With in-depth analysis and discussions, the limitations and advantages of each algorithm are outlined. In addition, the performance trend of each algorithm with increasing parameter values is studied.
