Deep learning based methods have demonstrated great success in network intrusion detection. However, the use of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) makes it difficult to support real-time, packet-level detections in communication networks that handle high-speed traffic with low latency and energy. To this end, this paper proposes a novel approach to efficiently realize a DNN-based classifier by converting it into a pruned, explainable decision tree and evaluating its hardware implementation using an emerging architecture based on memristor devices, in order to support network intrusion detections on the fly. Preliminary experiments on real-world datasets show that the proposed method achieves nearly four orders of magnitude speed up while retaining the desired accuracy.
