Building a botnet detector model with multiple machine learning techniques

In this section, we are going to learn how to build different botnet detection systems with many machine learning algorithms. As a start to a first practical lab, let's start by building a machine learning-based botnet detector using different classifiers. By now, I hope you have acquired a clear understanding about the major steps of building machine learning systems. So, I believe that you already know that, as a first step, we need to look for a dataset. Many educational institutions and organizations are given a set of collected datasets from internal laboratories. One of the most well known botnet datasets is called the CTU-13 dataset. It is a labeled dataset ...
