One of the significant threats that faces the web nowadays is the DNS tunneling which is an attack that exploit the domain name protocol in order to bypass security gateways. This would lead to lose critical information which is a disastrous situation for many organizations. Recently, researchers have pay more attention in the machine learning techniques regarding the process of DNS tunneling. Machine learning is significantly impacted by the utilized features. However, the lack of benchmarking
