MIDAS uses unsupervised learning to detect anomalies in a streaming manner in real-time and has become a new baseline. It was designed keeping in mind the way recent sophisticated attacks occur. MIDAS can be used to detect intrusions, Denial of Service (DoS), Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks, financial fraud and fake ratings. MIDAS combines a chi-squared goodness-of-fit test with the Count-Min-Sketch (CMS) streaming data structures to get an anomaly score for each edge. It then incorporates temporal and spatial relations to achieve better performance. MIDAS provides theoretical guarantees on the false positives and is three orders of magnitude faster than existing state of the art solutions.
