Security threat protection is important in the internet of things (IoT) applications since both the connected device and the captured data can be hacked or hijacked or both at the same time. To tackle the above-mentioned problem, we proposed three-level intrusion detection system conditional generative adversarial network (3LIDS-CGAN) model which includes four phases such as first-level intrusion detection system (IDS), second-level IDS, third-level IDS, and attack type classification. In first-level IDS, features of the incoming packets are extracted by the firewall. Based on the extracted features the packets are classified into three classes such as normal, malicious, and suspicious using support vector machine and golden eagle optimization. Suspicious packets are forwarded to the second-level IDS which classified the suspicious packets as normal or malicious. Here, signature-based intrusions are detected using attack history information, and anomaly-based intrusions are detected using event-based semantic mapping. In third-level IDS, adversary packets are detected using CGAN which automatically learns the adversarial environment and detects adversary packets accurately. Finally, proximal policy optimization is proposed to detect the attack type. Experiments are conducted using the NS-3.26 network simulator and performance is evaluated by various performance metrics which results that the proposed 3LIDS-CGAN model outperforming other existing works.
