Illegal access points in an internet network is a frequent concern for users connected to the network, in this paper, we try to identify the illegal access point entries via RTT Round Trip Time data gathered through all the nodes connected to the network. We will apply machine learning models, in order to correctly classify the access points as authenticated or unauthenticated. Our main objective, in this paper is to study the effectiveness of identification of various illegal access points through various machine learning algorithms such as SVM Support vector machines, KNN K means the nearest neighbour and Genetic algorithms. On performing a comparative analysis among multiple algorithms, we have found that Ant colony Optimization algorithm achieves the highest accuracy of 98.15%. In the proposed work, the synthetic RTT dataset has been generated using network simulation for performing predictive analysis.
Keywords – Illegal Access point, Machine learning, genetic algorithm, network protection.
