This work aims to improve the accuracy of the SVDD-based Intrusion Detection Systems. In this study we are interested by approaches using only one-class classification, namely the class of normal user sessions. Sessions are modeled by vectors of points in a finite features space. The goal of using the SVDD in anomaly detection is to find the hypersphere with a minimal volume that encloses the entire scatter of points (i.e. the normal sessions). This paper discusses the general case where the shape of the scatter is arbitrary. In this case some voids can occur between the scatter and the boundary of the hypersphere, and mainly cause a distortion of the data description that reduces the accuracy of the detection. The objective of this work is to study and highlight the best techniques that help removing voids and thus improving the accuracy of the SVDD. Experimental results show that choosing the appropriate techniques and parameters can significantly improve the accuracy of the SVDD.
