Intrusion detection systems offer monolithic way to detect attacks through monitoring, searching for abnormal characteristics and malicious behavior in network communications. Cyber-attack is performed through using covert channel which currently, is one of the most sophisticated challenges facing network security systems. \ud Covert channel is used to ex/infiltrate classified information from legitimate targets, consequently, this \ud manipulation violates network security policy and privacy. The New Generation Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) has certain security vulnerabilities and need to be addressed using further advanced techniques. Fuzzy rule is implemented to classify different network attacks as an advanced machine learning technique, meanwhile, \ud Genetic algorithm is considered as an optimization technique to obtain the ideal fuzzy rule. This paper suggests a novel hybrid covert channel detection system implementing two Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques; Fuzzy Logic and Genetic Algorithm (FLGA) to gain sufficient and optimal detection rule against covert channel. Our \ud approach counters sophisticated network unknown attacks through an advanced analysis of deep packet inspection. Results of our suggested system offer high detection rate of 97.7% and a better performance in comparison to previous tested techniques.
