Anomaly detection in a Wireless Sensor Network is an important aspect of data analysis in order to facilitate intrusion and event detection. A key challenge is creating optimal classifiers constructed from training sets in which the anomaly rates are varying due to the existence of non-stationary distributions in the data. In this paper we propose an(More)
—Anomaly detection in a wireless sensor network (WSN) is an important aspect of data analysis in order to identify data items that significantly differ from normal data. A characteristic of the data generated by a WSN is that the data distribution may alter over the lifetime of the network due to the changing nature of the phenomenon being observed. Anomaly(More)
Principal component analysis and the residual error is an effective anomaly detection technique. In an environment where anomalies are present in the training set, the derived principal components can be skewed by the anomalies. A further aspect of anomaly detection is that data might be distributed across different nodes in a network and their(More)
Kernel principal component analysis and the reconstruction error is an effective anomaly detection technique for non-linear data sets. In an environment where a phenomenon is generating data that is non-stationary, anomaly detection requires a recomputation of the kernel eigenspace in order to represent the current data distribution. Recomputation is a(More)
Anomaly detection is an important aspect of data analysis. Kernel methods have been shown to exhibit good anomaly detection performance, however, they have high computational complexity. When anomaly detection is performed on a data stream, computational complexity is a key issue. Our approach uses the kernel hypersphere, which does not require a(More)
