Data Mining and Machine Learning in Cybersecurity

Data Mining and Machine Learning in CybersecurityWith the rapid advancement of information discovery techniques, machine learning and data mining continue to play a significant role in cybersecurity. Although several conferences, workshops, and journals focus on the fragmented research topics in this area, there has been no single interdisciplinary resource on past and current works and possible paths for future research in this area. This book fills this need.

From basic concepts in machine learning and data mining to advanced problems in the machine learning domain, Data Mining and Machine Learning in Cybersecurity provides a unified reference for specific machine learning solutions to cybersecurity problems. It supplies a foundation in cybersecurity fundamentals and surveys contemporary challenges—detailing cutting-edge machine learning and data mining techniques.

It also:

  • Unveils cutting-edge techniques for detecting new attacks
  • Contains in-depth discussions of machine learning solutions to detection problems
  • Categorizes methods for detecting, scanning, and profiling intrusions and anomalies
  • Surveys contemporary cybersecurity problems and unveils state-of-the-art machine learning and data mining solutions
  • Details privacy-preserving data mining methods

 

This interdisciplinary resource includes technique review tables that allow for speedy access to common cybersecurity problems and associated data mining methods. Numerous illustrative figures help readers visualize the workflow of complex techniques and more than forty case studies provide a clear understanding of the design and application of data mining and machine learning techniques in cybersecurity.

Cyber Attacks: Protecting National Infrastructure

Cyber Attacks: Protecting National InfrastructureNo nation – especially the United States – has a coherent technical and architectural strategy for preventing cyber attack from crippling essential critical infrastructure services. This book initiates an intelligent national (and international) dialogue amongst the general technical community around proper methods for reducing national risk. This includes controversial themes such as the deliberate use of deception to trap intruders. It also serves as an attractive framework for a new national strategy for cyber security, something that several Presidential administrations have failed in attempting to create. In addition, nations other than the US might choose to adopt the framework as well

Amoroso offers a technical, architectural, and management solution to the problem of protecting national infrastructure. This includes practical and empirically-based guidance for security engineers, network operators, software designers, technology managers, application developers, and even those who simply use computing technology in their work or home. Each principle is presented as a separate security strategy, along with pages of compelling examples that demonstrate use of the principle. A specific set of criteria requirements allows any organization, such as a government agency, to integrate the principles into their local environment.

This book takes the national debate on protecting critical infrastructure in an entirely new and fruitful direction.

* Covers cyber security policy development for massively complex infrastructure using ten principles derived from experiences in U.S. Federal Government settings and a range of global commercial environments.

* Provides a unique and provocative philosophy of cyber security that directly contradicts conventional wisdom about info sec for small or enterprise-level systems.

* Illustrates the use of practical, trial-and-error findings derived from 25 years of hands-on experience protecting critical infrastructure on a daily basis at AT&T.

Cyberspace and the Use of Force

Cyberspace and the Use of ForceCyberspace and the Use of Force focuses specifically on one of the most challenging, contentious, and important issues in international law; how to determine what constitutes a use of force between states in CyberSpace under the contemporary international law paradigm of conflict management defined by the Charter of the United Nations. This text provides a detailed analysis of existing international law and state practice that reveals which state activities in CyberSpace may constitute a use of force and an armed attack that invokes a state's right to use force in self-defense. Though referenced in detail for lawyers, this text provides the necessary legal background to make it a useful desk reference for government officials, military operators, students, and others who are interested in the application of international law in CyberSpace.

Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse Engineers

Gray Hat Python: Python Programming for Hackers and Reverse EngineersPython is fast becoming the programming language of choice for hackers, reverse engineers, and software testers because it's easy to write quickly, and it has the low-level support and libraries that make hackers happy. But until now, there has been no real manual on how to use Python for a variety of hacking tasks. You had to dig through forum posts and man pages, endlessly tweaking your own code to get everything working. Not anymore.

Gray Hat Python explains the concepts behind hacking tools and techniques like debuggers, trojans, fuzzers, and emulators. But author Justin Seitz goes beyond theory, showing you how to harness existing Python-based security tools – and how to build your own when the pre-built ones won't cut it.

You'll learn how to:

  • Automate tedious reversing and security tasks
  • Design and program your own debugger
  • Learn how to fuzz Windows drivers and create powerful fuzzers from scratch
  • Have fun with code and library injection, soft and hard hooking techniques, and other software trickery
  • Sniff secure traffic out of an encrypted web browser session
  • Use PyDBG, Immunity Debugger, Sulley, IDAPython, PyEMU, and more

The world's best hackers are using Python to do their handiwork. Shouldn't you?
