The success of an intrusion detection system depends on the selection of the appropriate features in detecting the intrusion activity. Selecting unnecessary features may cause computational issues and decrease the accuracy of detection. Furthermore, current research concentrates more on the technique of detection rather than revealing the reason behind the selection. They just used the features without mentioning the influence of the feature inside the system itself. Therefore this research will reveal the influence of the features using statistical approach and comparison approach. The result indicates that the feature selected in the research has a good influence and may be useful in detecting the intrusion activity. After revealing the relation and influence of the features, we propose a set of minimum features that can be used to detect a fast attack.
