Abstract: In the network security defense system,the intrusion detection system will produce massive redundancy and wrong network security warning information in real time.Therefore,it is necessary to mine frequent item patterns from association rules and sequential patterns of alert information,distinguish normal behavior patterns,and screen out real attack information.Compared with Apriori,FP-growth and other algorithms,COFI-tree algorithm possesses bigger advantages of performance ,but it still can not meet the needs offast analysis on large-scale network security information.To this end,this paper proposed an improved network security alert information association analysis algorithm based on COFI-tree algorithm.The algorithm improve the performance of COFI-tree algorithm through node addressing mode based on reverse linked list and frequent item processing method based on new SD structure.The experimental results based on Kddcup99 dataset show that this method can basically guarantee the accuracy,reduce a lot of computing overhead,shorten processing time by more than 21% on average compared with the traditional Cofi algorithm,and solve the problem of low speed in association analysis under massive network alarm information.

Key words: COFI-tree, Network security, Frequent item sets, Data mining, Association analysis
