What is a genetic algorithm and where can I learn more about them online?

Learn about genetic algorithms as well as where to find online resources for understanding them.

I'm working on intrusion detection using genetic algorithms. I'm a novice in this area, and I want your expertise on how I can develop my codes in order to make the algorithms work.
Work on genetic algorithms and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) has been going on for some time and these systems continue to improve.

Crosbie and Spafford did work with this approach back in 1995. When used for IDSs, genetic algorithms work by means of a rough set theory where the resulting dataset is used as the inputs for the neural network. I would suggest that you review some of work that has been done in this area to help you with your development. A few links are provided here:
