Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to design intrusion detection from suspicious URLs using optimal fuzzy logic system. Basically, the system consists of three modules such as: 1) feature extraction; 2) feature selection; 3) classification. At first, we extract the four kinds of feature from the dataset which have a total of 30 features. Among that, we select the important features using hybridisation of firefly and cuckoo search algorithm (HFFCS). Then, we train the selected features using fuzzy logic classifier and then we calculate the fuzzy logic score. Finally in testing, the fuzzy logic classifier detected the malicious URL based on the fuzzy score. In this work, we use two types of database such as URL reputation dataset and phishing websites dataset. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed malicious URL detection method outperforms other existing methods.
