Hands-On Machine Learning for Cybersecurity

By: Soma Halder, Sinan Ozdemir

Overview of this book

Cyber threats today are one of the costliest losses that an organization can face. In this book, we use the most efficient tool to solve the big problems that exist in the cybersecurity domain. The book begins by giving you the basics of ML in cybersecurity using Python and its libraries. You will explore various ML domains (such as time series analysis and ensemble modeling) to get your foundations right. You will implement various examples such as building system to identify malicious URLs, and building a program to detect fraudulent emails and spam. Later, you will learn how to make effective use of K-means algorithm to develop a solution to detect and alert you to any malicious activity in the network. Also learn how to implement biometrics and fingerprint to validate whether the user is a legitimate user or not. Finally, you will see how we change the game with TensorFlow and learn how deep learning is effective for creating models and training systems

Changing the Game with TensorFlow

TensorFlow is an open source software library developed by the Google Brain team to do high-performance numerical computations. The TensorFlow library helps in programming across a range of numerical tasks.

In this chapter, we will look at some of the older use cases for using TensorFlow. Some of the major topics covered in the chapter are as follows:

  • Introduction to TensorFlow
  • Installation of TensorFlow
  • TensorFlow for Windows users
  • Hello world in TensorFlow
  • Importing the MNIST dataset
  • Computation graphs
  • Tensor processing unit
  • Using TensorFlow for intrusion detection
  • Hands-on Tensor flow coding
