    chines called bots, provide a distributed platform for several threats against cyber world entities and enterprises. Intrusion detection system (IDS) provides an efficient counter- measure against botnets. It continually monitors and analyzes network traffic for potential vulnerabilities and possible existence of active attacks. A payload-inspection-based IDS (PI-IDS) iden- tifies active intrusion attempts by inspecting transmission control protocol and user datagram protocol packet’s payload and com- paring it with previously seen attacks signatures. However, the PI-IDS abilities to detect intrusions might be incapacitated by packet encryption. Traffic-based IDS (T-IDS) alleviates the short- comings of PI-IDS, as it does not inspect packet payload; however, it analyzes packet header to identify intrusions. As the network’s traffic grows rapidly, not only the detection-rate is critical, but also the efficiency and the scalability of IDS become more significant. In this paper, we propose a state- of-the-art T-IDS built on a novel randomized data partitioned learning model (RDPLM), relying on a compact network fea- ture set and feature selection techniques, simplified subspacing and a multiple randomized meta-learning technique. The pro- posed model has achieved 99.984% accuracy and 21.38 s training time on a well-known benchmark botnet dataset. Experiment results demonstrate that the proposed methodology outper- forms other well-known machine-learning models used in the same detection task, namely, sequential minimal optimization, deep neural network, C4.5, reduced error pruning tree, and randomTree.
